Reflection of The Orangerie within the magnificent grounds of Dunham Massey near Altrincham in north-west England. This 300 acre estate (a National Trust property since 1976), includes a deer park and the former home of the last Earl of Stamford - an impressive Georgian mansion which was used as a military hospital during WWI.
The mansion is surrounded by a moat
The garden tour guide was a wealth of information and he made the walk very interesting.
The vibrant red tall Tulips featured often
as did the ever-appealing Bluebells
After an hour's meandering, we headed for the tea rooms which offered delicious food and were doing a roaring trade!
This was the view through one of the windows.
I hope you enjoyed your "sample" visit here too, as I link up with
