Last Sunday we spent a lovely couple of hours exploring the grounds of, the National Trust property, Tyntesfield. As with many Trust places Tyntesfield has been pictured on this blog before back in Autumn 2013 and early Spring this year.
Autumn leaves were still aplenty but it was the gardens that I enjoyed exploring on this trip.
Getting up close again and appreciating all that trees have to offer on the way through to the greenhouse area.
In the Orangery garden plenty of blooms were still going strong, although some were starting to call it a day.
Inside the Orangery itself was an impressive collection of ornamental gourds.
This sad flower caught my eye, somebody had placed it carefully in a corner so as to protect its fallen head.
Inside the walled garden plenty of flowers were still blooming but my eyes are always drawn to the doors - excitedly one was open today so my imagination couldn't run away with me too much as to what lay on the other side!
