Chirk Gardens 2/5

On the way home from Porthmadog, North Wales last September we stopped off at the National Trust property at Chirk Castle and for three weeks I am featuring a series of shots I took there on three different themes, this being the final week.

 

In the gardens at Chirk is this lovely thatched summerhouse and I will admit to taking rather a lot of shots of it from all sorts of different viewpoints including the inside.

 

You can now view a selection of the latest competition images from my camera club here

I remember know. I have visited Chirk. I've got this picture somewhere!
Brian Walbey: I took quite a few of this from different angles and from the inside looking out.
What a wonderful place Brian. Very nice composition!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely place Richard, very quiet despite the other visitors.

Slightly bizarre topiary here Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Chris but a wonderful garden for all that.
It is a rather attractive summerhouse. The topiary in front is a bit odd. I wonder what it is supposed to be?
Brian Walbey: I don't know Bill but the summerhouse is everyones dream for their own garden, given the room.
There is quite a contrast between the perfectly sculpted bushes and the crazy one in the foreground.
Brian Walbey: yes but I quite like the one in the foreground whatever it is Mary.

That's a fine bit of thatching Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is indeed and a fine summerhouse Chad.

A fine bit of thatching, Brian. I can image the lord and master enjoying a summer's evening whilst the peasants toil in the fields.
Brian Walbey: I can imagine me and Maureen enjoying a summers evening in the summerhouse also Alan. Don't take that the wrong way!
This is a very beautiful garden Brian with lovely colours and different settings to look at and walk through. A lovely image.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Laurette. It is a lovely garden indeed.
Marvellous looking summerhouse & gardens. Don't see a chimney stack anywhere on the roof, though. Are summerhouses actually lived in, Brian?
Brian Walbey: No they are just there to sit in when the weather is good enough to go out, and then perhaps enjoy tea and read and generally relax.

Lovely place, Brian, except that I feel the topiarist is a bit lacking in imagination.
Brian Walbey: yes I thought that Ray, mind you there are so many of them that he's no doubt fed up with bush cutting all the time.
Lush greens, it does look like a interesting garden. A rather splendid summer house also.
Brian Walbey: Yes the summer house is one I could spend plenty of time in John.
Unbelieveable - Beautiful. I love the way that you have included the big shrub in the foreground.
Brian Walbey: That shrub really caught my eye as the foreground interest, and no doubt plenty of other photographers over the years.
Although I am quite familiar with the castle the gardens are another world, they look a delightful place to wander.
Brian Walbey: They are lovely gardens to wander in Les.
