Hi Dotty and Karen ... Castle Ashby has very spacious gardens ...
lots of lovely lawns and beautiful architecture ...

14 Jun, 2012

 

I know, Terra...unattainable orangeries...
...and me with a Lidl citrus mitas looking for a good home...

14 Jun, 2012

 

Wow Stunning Terra, Conker i mean of course ;-)

14 Jun, 2012

 

WOW!

Would like to have a nap there :))) Beautiful old gardens.

Thanks folks ..
Conker loved those lawns.
He was well-behaved as usual !
Karen ... this is many miles from Lidl ;o)

14 Jun, 2012

 

But sometimes Lidl plants grow to a splendor, TT. My Tesco rhododendron grows and blooms while others - bought in famous and expensive GC - have still some problems.

14 Jun, 2012

 

Yes ... bargain price plants often grow very well :o)

14 Jun, 2012

 

Exactly! They are happy to survive, so do not make problems. Like people.

The Italians seem very good at gardens with water playing and rocky thingies....I watched Monti Don. The arch is very grand. Conker is so good at improving a scene. Even in an Italian garden.

Stunning!
I am beginning to think Conker is a card board cutout though ;)))

14 Jun, 2012

Hi Delonix ..
The UK has had lots of rain !!!

Looks like a super place, COnker looks as though he is enjoying himself too

Hello Linda.
Thanks for visiting my photo.
Castle Ashby gardens are lovely to visit.

17 Jun, 2012

 

Just looked this place up on the WWW and it's a lovely place. We reckon about 2 hours drive from here.

Terratoonie:

You're very lucky, lots of rain. There's been no rain here in months...and we won't get any until Nov or Dec. (most likely).

17 Jun, 2012

 

Come off it Terratoonie. I've been a member of GoY for some years now and, although I don't always comment, I know most peoples gardens. I know this is yours. Why else would Conker look so at home? :-))

21 Jun, 2012

 

Hi again Delonix ..
.. yet more rain today.
I wish you a very rainy Christmas ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

Hello Sarra !!!

So lovely to hear from you. A voice of sanity from the early days of GoY ;o)

Okay, okay, we confess...

This is Conker's "country seat" ... he spends his weekends here ... It takes absolutely ages for him to mow all those lawns and clip that topiary x

22 Jun, 2012

 

We've "come clean" on our latest photo ;o)

22 Jun, 2012

 

He really does look like Lord of the manor there!

Hi Tuesdaybear ...
After visiting those extensive lawns, Conker probably thinks my gardens are rather small ;o)
