 Mobi-Pics – UK 2015 (16)

Barnsdale Gardens – Batch No.1

I told a fib.

After a quick look at my folders, I thought here was only enough IMG_2178photographs remaining for one final batch in my Mobi-Pics section. I have now opened the folder and found there were 90 pics inside, a little too many for one blog.
In fact, I’m going to divide them into three groups of 30 photos which I will publish over three blogs.

Even then, I won’t be finished as there really is one final batch that covers our departure from the UK. So my pics taken in the UK last year are going to continue for a few more weeks yet.

So today, I am publishing the first of three batches that were taken at the gorgeous Barnsdale Gardens, near Oakham, in England’s smallest county of Rutland.
Barnsdale Gardens were made famous through the BBC television series Gardeners’ World which was presented there from 1979 until 1996. It was originally developed from a ploughed field and now covers 8 acres comprising 37 individual gardens and features.

The gardens are stunningly beautiful and I just couldn’t stop snapping.
