Long Close & Its Garden 5/5

To finish, the view having stepped down into the main garden area and turned round to look at the rear of Long Close House and the lovely terraces leading up to it, a truly lovely garden with a lot more to see that I haven't showed you in the lower garden areas and the woodland walk.


So many of you seem to have enjoyed this series that I have substituted next weeks planned postings, which you will now see just before Christmas, with a further 5 images I took at these gardens, I hope you enjoy those as well.

I wish I could join you around the gardens. I am enjoying the series very much Brian.
Brian Walbey: I would be very pleased for you to join me, and my wife, in this delightful garden Juan.

Yup. More , please.
You are doing a fine job on a wonderful subject, Brian.
Brian Walbey: You've twisted my arm Ray, alright then, more next week.
Fantastic series Brian. I love gardens and the way in which you captured this series is truly amazing.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances, I hope you enjoy the extra images I am putting on next week.

The perfect place to be on a sunny day

Smashing photo of the great garden

A great place to be, it looks beautiful with the sun.
I think the gardener has a days job to work here.
Wonderful.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, we had a lovely afternoon there, and it is only a short distance from us, so we must go back again I think.

The thing is, Brian, I get to see these places because of you...something that may never happen for me in real life. So thank you.
Brian Walbey: It is a pleasure Ginnie, we all show each other places we will probably never go to ourselves, that's one of the best things about SC.

The house and gardens look delightful.
Brian Walbey: They really are Chad.
The three levels gives the garden an added visual interest, Brian. I'm so glad you turned around and captured this view.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly, a couple of the extra shots next week will show beyond the bank of trees in the distance.
Charming Brian. I will look forward to the second batch
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I hope they aren't an anti-climax.

A wonderful view while our eyes are going up the steps of the terraces - this garden is really well cared for -and the sun is brightening up the grass and the flowers. I'll enjoy your following postings. Do you show us some exotic trees Long Close is famous for as I read? Mostly we have only a few time to stay at the English gardens, and now the garden has been closed till next springtime.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. I hope you all enjoy the extra pictures next week.

I'm glad you have extended the series - you have put these gardens on my list of places to visit
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, in which case I hope you enjoy next week. If, as you said at Dudley, you visit Leicester quite often then this garden is only about 20 - 25 minutes from the city centre I should think, but it is closed until next year at the moment.
Another lovely view of it Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Janet.

No-one does gardens better than the Brits (although a Japanese garden is good, too). This is just the sort of place to relax after a hard afternoon of croquet.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Alan, with waitress service and am appropriate beverage.
I am just returning from a photo trip to Guadalajara, around Madrid. Country is very dry here, so your image transport me again to the green North. Here I like the absolut contrast with the white non-sky, the provider of water, let's say.
Brian Walbey: I hope you enjoyed your trip Juan, I look forward to seeing the photos. I guess Spain doesn't get quite as green as this in the hotter spots.
I like this shot Brian... you have added depth to the lovely garden... i have enjoyed all five in this series....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, I hope you enjoy the unplanned expansion of this series starting tomorrow also.
I've always liked terraces and steps.
Brian Walbey: Yes this looks rather nice John, later this week you will see the view from the top of the terraces.
