An echo of the past

A few years ago I went to Easton Lodge. I explained that the gardens almost disappeared.

Last year the garden had to close to the public and I thought that was it. The Easton Lodge trust has opened it again this year but only once a month. A good idea erhaps since there were loads of visitors today.














A sundial.

















Alas little has really changed in two years. I deeply admire the efforts of the volunteers but unless someone with the funds comes forward the Gardens of East Lodge will remain just an echo.

Your bumble bee pictures are super - what lens did you use, Pete?

Pete said...

Caroline it was Sigma 150 f2.8 macro. pricey but a nice lens.

I love the first statue. It's charming. I don't suppose you can get that car to me, can you? I suppose that's asking a bit too much...sigh! Love the pictures.

Thanks for that information, Pete - it certainly takes great pictures.
