Barbara..everything is just breathtakingly lovely...I could linger and look at your photos for a long while...I especially love the bench with the stone figures behind it...I wonder..how old are these? They are fantastic! I'm so happy your have shared this with us...
Beautiful Photos as usual Barbara. I always find it fascinating when visiting a place full of history.
Oh, I wish I could be there in person to walk and chat and visit as we enjoy the beauty of this place together! ~Adrienne~
I am so enjoying your photo journey! It's so fascinating!BlessingsLinda
I enjoy the way that you collect similar subjects together...gates, doorways, paths, chimneys, benches, etc. The colors are wonderful...I am completely charmed by the color of the bricks and roof tiles. Thanks, Barbara!
Mouthwateringly wonderfulIsn't it lovely that such places are open to the public so we can all enjoy them.Super photos
Absolutely beautiful and enchanting
I thoroughly enjoy the tours you take me on via your blog. Things I will probably never get to see in real life are there to explore. Thanks so much.Lorrie
Just beautiful...wish my gardens looked like that.
Very interesting and also beautiful, your three postings about Hatfield House and its gardens. It was as if I were visiting the place on my own. Where were all the other visitors?
Yes. The Wisteria is really fragrant at the moment.
Barbara, I'm Brazilian and I'm going to London next month. Do you know someone there who rents room for a short time? I'm going there between June 07 until July 06. I prefer to stay in a house of a member of church. I'm going to study in Bayswater. Thank you anyway. My e-mail is Sylviabranco@gmail.com.
I am touched by how much thought went into creating this beautiful place. Thank you for taking the time to let us come along!P.S.:I took a break during yesterday's late afternoon, strolling through the Alpine Gardens at Belvedere Castle. They are much smaller of course, but so many flowers are blooming there, it seems like paradise.
Thank you for such a wonderful picture tour. It really makes me want to go and wonder around. Have looked at the photo's several times. Lovely.Is it a National Trust property?KimHereford UK
Fantastic photos, Barbara, the wisteria, the gardens, the sculpture, the buildings!!! I wish I was living there!
That was a fun tour. I love the door ways, the garden entrances, the seats, the gates, especially the intricate rod iron gate! I saw a similar one in Oxford and have never forgotten it....and of coarse all the old vines climbing up walls!
What a awesome place. A real treat for the eyes.
Wow...so many interesting features and beautiful photos!That carved panel with the queen and courtiers is quite interesting. I notice she is taller than everyone else....I'm sure that is intentional to show status. The clothing is so detailed; love it!I'm guessing that bare fine trained on trellises all around the formal garden is wisteria....that will be absolutely breathtaking when it is in bloom! Here our wisteria blooms are long gone...just lots of green leaves now!Sara
I could lose myself here for hours or days. It's like the Secret Garden, that dear children's book I so love.The most incredible vistas......simply stunning.
The sculpted statues above the bench are extraordinary..just marvelling at the detail and the beauty....If ever I go to the UK, this place is number one on the list of places to visit!
