Chatsworth - The Grounds & Garden 10/14

One of a series I took during a visit to Chatsworth in September last year. This is the famous Willow Tree fountain, and as you can see the branches are continually spraying water. I am having the Cataract in my other eye dealt with tomorrow so might be missing for a day or two until things sort themselves out.

I expect, when you return with eyes fully functional, Brian, you will be a little embarrassed to discover that a better title for this interesting image might be "Candid shot of action in the neighbour's bathroom".

You won't know yourself, Brian. I will think of you tomorrow
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Lisl.
An attractive find Brian. Hope all goes well tomorrow
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
The very best of luck then Brian, hope it goes well for you.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad.
I totally missed this while we were there, Brian. Guess we need to go back!

In the meantime, take care of yourself and come back to us with "perfect" vision. My day is coming, I'm sure.
Brian Walbey: Yes you should definitely go back Ginnie, the question is how of course. Thanks for the good wishes, I know loads of people in our age bracket who have one or both eyes dealt with, they all say they've not seen so well for years so I pray that's hop it works out for me.

I was looking at the picture and started wondering whether the water is spouting from the tree (which looked real to me). And then I read your text. A very interesting corner of the garden.
Brian Walbey: Yes the water comes out of the ends of the branches, quite a novel idea.

I don't ever remember seeing this on visits to Chatsworth, thank you for the picture, I will look out for it next time.

I hope your operation goes well and that you are soon back taking pictures.
Brian Walbey: I'd seen it before but it wasn't where I thought it was. The op.seems to have gone well, early days yet of course.

Oh very good. Just the sort of water feature I would like on my country estate.

I hoe your eye surgery goes well and you're not kept hanging around all day.
Brian Walbey: Yes I wouldn't mind this in my garden. Re the op arrived with 9 others for 8.00 and being 8th.on the list I went in at 11.10 and was out at 11.30 and sent home at 11.45, it's like a conveyor belt once they actually start the procedures. All seems well so far.

Great fountain, Brian.

Hope all goes well tomorrow.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pauline, the op seems to have gone well, it takes at least two weeks to settle down though.
