Giverny, the garden.
Lovely pictures, both Norfolk and Giverney. I'm reading on my phone at the moment - looking forward to a proper look later.
More. Also Monet's house.
Wonderful. Thanks everyone for sharing - and taking all that time to upload so many great pics!
Gorgeous pictures everyone - this thread is like having a lovely coffee table book to peruse.
Giverny looks great - fantastic photos. Really whetted my appetite for next May now
Ah. Spring photos of Giverny, Chicky
Really beautiful photos - from everyone
I love the formal ponds in BL's pix.
Hope you get a good day for photos when you go too chicky
Thanks, BL - lovely!
I'm with Joyce. Restful green with splashes of colour...
Yesterday I visited Ripley Castle in N.Yorks, not far from Harrogate. The gardens are pleasant enough but unremarkable; the main draw for me was the ancient trees in the deer park, some more than 500 years old. Entry to the park and gardens is free on weekdays.
You can look round the house, but only on a guided tour, for which you have to pay.
The base of a huge beech tree.
I posted the first of these photos, of a fabulous sweet chestnut, on Forkers last night. The lower picture has the characteristic twist, which you could see on one side of the tree.
Two huge old oaks.
The lake framed by a gigantic sycamore.
One of a group of Wellingtonias, 150 years old. Lovely squishy bark!
I'll post some photos of the gardens after we've had tea.
