Alnwick Gardens ~ part 3 ~ flowers


Part 1 HERE.    Part 2 HERE

Of course, a garden isn’t really a garden without flowers.  At the top of the central water cascade is where they’re all at, in a walled-off courtyard.  Plenty of tulips in bloom in April of course, all gloriously coloured, such happy flowers to see after a long grey winter.

 

a lovely magnolia was in bloom too,

 

always glad to get the macro lens out.

Stay tooned folks, more to come. 🙂
