On this day

In 1783 Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, the greatest English landscape gardener, died. His work lives on today throughout the great estates of England. He designed and assisted with many gardens, including Charlecote Park (Warwickshire) and Wallington (Northumberland).

He also designed the estate where I play golf and part of the course is on his original landscape which means we can't alter anything. This would be OK exccept we have a huge tree right in the middle of one of the fairways and no matter how I play the hole I lways hit the damn thing.
