Dunster Castle 4/7

There are some quite nice smaller additions to Dunster Castle and this is the window of a small room to one side of the inner garden area very interestingly covered in various sorts of foliage.

The Victorians used to let their buildings disappear under foliage: this is a half way compromise
Brian Walbey: Yes they did, and then left it for the descendants to clear it all off.
On a sunny day this would be pure choccie box Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed bill, a shame it wasn't the best of weather for our visit.
this could well be a Anton Pieck house in The Efteling here in Holland
Brian Walbey: I Googled that Chantal, I see what you mean, like something out of one of his pictures indeed.

Tis has great charm Brian but, beware of the damage plants can do to buildings eh.
Brian Walbey: I know, we had Ivy up our garden wall and it was a devil of a job to get rid of.

The greenery is something I have always liked on stone buildings.
Brian Walbey: It looks good but is a real job to get off if you get fed up with it.

The creepers are well established almost taking over by the look of it.
Brian Walbey: They look good and suit the oldness of the place don't they.
