photoblog image 'Scene' in Dorset - Parley Manor 5/5

'Scene' in Dorset - Parley Manor 5/5

This "longish" series comprises a variety of subjects and shots I took during our April visit to Dorset for our nephews wedding.

Just to finish this quick look at Parley there is this nice gateway leading out from the garden to the courtyard and another garden outside.  It was through here where the Bride and Groom would leave later on, like a gateway into a new life together, hows that for the romantic bit ;)

Indeed quite a romantic spot, but I can also see Hyacinth Bouquet come running through that gate in chase of some 'Lord of the Manor' and controlling her husband:' Come along Richard! Don't slouch!
Brian Walbey: Lol. It is certainly the sort of place Hyacinth would aspire to Marion.
Yes, Brian, a charming and romantic courtyard; the ideal spot for the Bride & Groom to take their leave.


LOL! Marion, I loved 'Keeping Up Appearances' and I can see Hyacinth doing exactly that.
Brian Walbey: It is a very nice place Beverly and yes, Hyacinth would feel at home here I suspect.

Sounds like you are still into Fairy Tales, Brian.

This shot looks like it would be a good illustration for the book.
Brian Walbey: I must have had an idle brain moment when I wrote my narative Ray, Maureen would say so I suspect.

This is what I think of when I imagine English gardens, Brian. So delightfully quaint.
Brian Walbey: English gardens are very lovely all over the country Ginnie.

Through the gate and into a new life - so let's hope it is a happy one together Brian!
Brian Walbey: I hope so too Chris, mind you they have been living together for some years as they do these days, my kids included.
Aw Brian ... You ol' romantic smile

Brian Walbey: Don't for goodness sake ever suggest that to Maureen, she might well beg to differ!
You old romantictongue
Brian Walbey: Don't for goodness sake ever suggest that to Maureen, she might well beg to differ!
Beautifully capture. You old romantic!
Brian Walbey: Don't for goodness sake ever suggest that to Maureen, she might well beg to differ!
Very romantic Brian. All in all it seems a very romantic place for a wedding.
Brian Walbey: It was a lovely place Sheila, spoilt only by planes coming in to Bournemouth Airport every so often.
lovely doorway
Brian Walbey: It is isn't it Rob.
Oh, I had you figured for an old romantic anyway, Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Don't for goodness sake ever suggest that to Maureen, she might well beg to differ!
If I had been the bride I would have been delighted. Love those pansies
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Janet.
looks like a secret garden entrance, very nice
Brian Walbey: It certainly has that feel, thanks derek.
Very romantic Brian and a lovely gate it is, I hope someone got a picture of them going through it smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda. We left before the end so I can't answer for your second comment.

Lovely, Brian. I like the framing of the arch and the beautiful pots of flowers. Makes me wonder what's beyond the arch to the left or right.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. Outside is the big house to the right, a large gravel drive area and flower beds, and to the left some other buildings and the drive out to the carpark, but is is still quite nice.

Much much better cared for than my garden
Brian Walbey: I daren't say that Tony as Maureen has the green fingers in our house not me.
