Thank you all for your comments and votes on the cactus, taken in the same place Dyffryn House Gardens, the man in the background is playing Croquet on the lawn, the house see V4 was in the hands of the local authority and was being left to rot, it has now been put in the hands of the National Trust and renovations have started, so now some hopes of rescue.

Some fine flower borders around the house, Trev, and of these my favourite is V 3 with ballustraded wall and stone urn as a backdrop.
Fine view of the house itself and so good to know the National Trust now have it under it's care and that it is not being allowed to decay further.......the facade in this view does look to be in very good order, and with a new slate roof?

Like V2 and V3 best. Well kept flower beds beautifully captured.
Reminds me of Culzean Castle in Ayrshire with ballustrades.
Well worth renovating.

The place looks like it's had some loving care applied to it already. Splendid flower beds and I love your vibrant colours.

Some wonderful borders, Trev, and so glad to hear that the NT have taken the house over and are going to eventually bring it back to its former glory. Carol

Four rather beautiful images, which I would love to learn more about. The pristine flower beds certainly put mine to shame, with their palette of gorgeous colours. However I think the fine architecture and sheer opulence depicted in versions 3 and 4 have be somewhat bowled over.

They've found a pretty good gardener as well, beautifully done beds. I do like v3 with the diagonal aspect of the ballustrade leading to the urn, which gives a dynamic to the image. Well captured set, Trev.

I like the composition of v3 very much - how wonderful that the National Trust is taking on the house in v4
Love the colourful borders - so beautifully laid out in height order SmileSmile

A lovely set! I like the fourth photo a little more than other ... Why? ... Because we do not have such a style of architecture here, in Russia ... A lovely architecture indeed!Smile

Truly lovely boarders in this garden and so glad to hear that lovely house
is being restored. The dark blue flowers in V2 are of great interest. Do you
know what they are? A beautiful set and glad to be your number 30 Trev…….
