Kingston Lacy ~ flower bed and house

Kingston Lacy, Dorset

Taken a week ago today on our visit to another spectacular National Trust property!

Kingston Lacy is a country house and estate near Wimborne Minster, Dorset, England, now owned by the National Trust. From the 17th to the late 20th centuries it was the family seat of the Bankes family, who had previously resided nearby at Corfe Castle until its destruction in the English Civil War after its incumbent owners, Sir John Bankes and Dame Mary joined the side of Charles I. They owned some 8,000 acres (3,200 ha) of the surrounding Dorset countryside and coastline. (Wikipedia)

A great composition, two nice scenes for the price of one.
Great floral garden leading the eye to the Kingston Lacy Home.
Very moody sky but the light in the image is pleasant to the eye.
Great resolution as always.

Great image capture and treatment, Chris!
It is good the National Trust preserves at least some of the former grandeur of these places.
Mildred Alpern18-Oct-2011 23:53
How well manicured this garden is, a visual treat of organized and carefully thought out plantings. Beautiful downward sloping of the grassy areas and those few steps in the background to take you to this stunning spot.
