  1. I just posted several paintings of this great place. I love doorways and portals in gardens, glimpses of what is to come so to speak.

  14. I too love garden 'doorways'. It must be 40 years since I visited this castle and don't recall the gardens at all. Must visit again as it is only just over an hour away from here.
