We set off for our holiday in Somerset but had a stop en route at Wilton House.
Wilton House is near Salisbury (Wiltshire) and is the home of the Earl of Pembroke.
There are many magnificent and very large old trees which sometimes seem to dwarf the house.
A section of the Palladian Bridge - the bridge is not open to the public however.
Around the Chinese garden and one of the four bridges - all red!
and how about this for a tree stump! Nature's own architecture.
Laburnum cascading down
and a boat house over on the other side of the river
Note: the white bird is the Little Egret!
Damselfly spreading its wings
