Elvaston Castle Walled Garden 4/7

The Elvaston Castle Old English Garden is a hidden gem within the grounds of the country park and is really worth a visit. This walled garden, although not large, was originally an area for plants under glass within which fruit, vegetables and exotic plants were grown for the Stanhope family. Redesigned in the 1970’s, it's now a quiet corner of the park.

 

Not my normal sort of subject and shot but I'm quite pleased with how this came out.

Excellent, Brian...I think of it as "Fauna of Elvaston Castle Walled Garden 1/7".

Plenty of work to do for that bee.
Brian Walbey: A bit like going to an enormous buffet for it.

A clean bee, Brian. Just starting work for the day. Wonderful shot!
