Holiday 4, Alnwick Gardens


Still on the first day. The rain cleared up when we went to Preston Tower, so we went back to Alnwick to walk around the formal gardens. These are set on a slope, with several water features.




You can see children with trucks carrying water around and getting merrily wet.














There were these large hollow hedges on the sides of the main water feature.

 

The flower gardens.
 

A dovecote on the wall in the flower gardens.


 

There was a garden of hedges and water "sculptures." There were a lot of happy kids sloshing around!


My brother-in-law took these photos of flowers.









 

P.S. I can't get the LJ cut to work! Is it, e.g. <lj-cut text="More"> where you want the cut, then </lj-cut> at the end?

These are GORGEOUS! The tunnel in the hedges is particularly cool. ♥

Yep, you've got the code right. I'm not sure why it's not working though. *scratches head*

Thanks! The tunnels had "windows," which you can see in the first photo.

Alnwick Gardens is beautiful! Both you and your brother-in-law took some wonderful pictures! I think I like the ones with the water features most. :-)

The water features were lovely, esp. the main one when all the fountains were n at once.
