Burghley House Part Two.

Sorry folks, I hope my photos will be here.

Near to this tree with its golden hanging things was a lovely Acer griseum with the peeling bark…….and one of the loveliest sculptures in the park, the allium.

We suddenly came upon these gorgeous wild flower areas which were humming with bees and hoverflies.

The wheel sculpture was really skilful, I thought, and loved the loggery.

A wooden tank, something obscure, a horse for Karen and the face was so clever as the foliage around it looks like hair and creates those green eyes.

The nex

t was called “A murmuration” and the snowdrops were just beautiful (and you could purchase one for £245!).

Venturing in to the trees we came across this little chap who some gardeners don’t like………and a few more forest inhabitants.

The last of the sculptures coming up.

Leaving the sculptures behind we went into the Secret Gardens. These are wonderful for children as a lot of water is involved and they are allowed to paddle. get wet and do whatever!

The last picture shows a curtain of water in that gate.

Having fun in the mirror maze and braving mists of water to look in the grotto.

We are nearly at the end of our visit. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We were tired when we got home and I am now even tireder for doing it all over again!!!

    This was absolutely incredible, Cilla – and I intend to look up this house on the internet to find out where it is and see if a visit is possible. Wonderful photographs – thank you very much indeed. Think the farmer I saw on TV last night, who sold off most of his land and ploughed the money into art works and a gallery on the ground he had left, must have visited this place.
