photoblog image Belvoir Lodge 3/7

Belvoir Lodge 3/7

Some parts of the garden have been landscaped quite well and I particularly liked this little open gateway into another area of the garden, and the raised flower bed on the right hand side.  This is one of my favourite images from the visit.

 

As I said on Monday the Garden Party was in aid of Vista, a Leicester based charity who’s aim is to help those who are blind or severely visually impaired. One of my fellow club members, who is himself only partially sighted, but is also a very good photographer, see here, organises the function every year, so no doubt we will be going again another year, the Strawberries and Cream and Pimms were delicious.

Yes...its delightful!
Brian Walbey: I was hoping people might think so Ray, thanks.
This is a gorgeous garden! My kind of place! Your composition shows it off well!
Brian Walbey: I just liked this little corner Elizabeth, sometimes the part is nicer than the whole in photos.
This is a very beautiful gateway Brian... i have never seen such a diversity in stones, bricks and flagstone in one shot before... and there is also more colour from the flowersgrin....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I must admit I would like this little corner in my garden Peter.

You English sure do seem to have a corner on this sort of thing, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Yes we do Ginnie, I would like this to be a corner in our garden.
i remember your friends pictures. He is a very accomplished photographer.

This is a pleasing shot Brian, some lovely texture and colour in the stonework
Brian Walbey: Yes the different stones blend in well together. My friend produced a couple of montages at the club last week and for the life of me I don't know how he done them with his limited eyesight, I certainly couldn't have done them.

A lovely summery corner. I can understand why it is one of your favourites
Brian Walbey: Yes I would like this in my garden Lisl.
What a delightful corner of the garden. Beautifully captured. Love the holyhocks! (:o)
Brian Walbey: Yes it is, I would like this corner in my garden I think.
Mmmm.... this is lovely, offering all sorts of promises as to what lays beyond (though that looks like a window of the lodge in the background). I could sit on the edge of that raised bit and just contemplate the plants and things around me.
Brian Walbey: It is nice, I saw this and firstly thought it looked nice, and then, I want one for my garden.
it makes a nice and friendly image
Brian Walbey: It has a sort of welcoming feeling to it doesn't it.
A nice place to spend a few minutes.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Mary, or even longer perhaps.

Very English - the old brickstones, the gate and the flowers! A calming, cheering up picture! I enjoyed reading your narrative! Positive news!
Brian Walbey: Yes I would like this as a corner of my garden Sheila.

I like the different coloured stone and brickwork in this. Ilike the sound of the strawberries and cream even more! I hope it's goodness about Maureen later on.
Brian Walbey: It was a very nice function Alan nice food and drink and a lovely garden. I saw Maureen this afternoon and she is well, fortunately the surgery was not quite as extensive as she originally thought it would be although she will still have a lengthy recovery period.

I understand why you like this gateway area, it is charming smile
Brian Walbey: Yes isn't it Martin, I wish it was in my garden.
Fine rustic beauty Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Fred, oh that it were mine.
A wonderfully flowered part of the garden Brian. The stonework is superb!
Brian Walbey: yes isn't it nice Richard, the whole garden is in fact.
Charming gateway, the hollyhocks complete the picture
Brian Walbey: It really caught my eye, I like these sort of things, they leave you wondering what is through the archway.
Must get round to visiting the castle.
Brian Walbey: Sadly the castle is generally closed to visitors Tom, it has gone corporate and caters for conferences, weddings and so on only.
this is a nice shot. everything is perfect here. great composition
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Ayush.
Simply enchanting, Brian. The open archway beckons the visitor to continue along the path.
Brian Walbey: This little arch and the path really caught my eye Beverly.
Lots of detail Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes and helped just a little by a touch of Topaz Adjust John.
