The Gardens

Quick post today showing the gardens around Cholmondeley Castle, we were lucky enough to able to walk around them while they weren’t open to the public, it’s getting close to the end of summer so the gardens are not at their best, but still very nice.
My first attempt at this type of shot.

  1. Just amazing! For me, even more than the castles themselves, these vast and magnificent gardens are what testify to the wealth of those old aristocratic estates – the luxury of using so much land for a garden, not agriculture is amazing. And look at the legacy – waterfalls, follies (how I adore a folly!), ponds and pathways … Beautiful.
