The Duo becomes an incidental trio in this side view of Pollok House across the Library Garden.
I have often shown images from Pollok Country Park but seldom of the House.

My thanks to all who took time to comment on Chilling Out.

Ronnie.

Info:
Pollok House was built in 1752 possibly to designs by William Adam and lies of course within Pollok Country Park. This Neo-Palladium Edwardian house is regarded as one of the finest country houses of it's kind, and yet it lies only 3 miles from Glasgow City centre. It was the ancestral home of the Maxwell family whose successive generations had lived in Pollok Estate for 700 years. It was gifted to the City of Glasgow in 1966 by Dame Anne Maxwell Macdonald, and is now managed for the city by the National Trust for Scotland. It houses an impressive collection of Spanish paintings including some by Goya and El Greco.
The Park also houses the Burrell Collection, over 1000 species of rhododendrons, a collection of highland cattle, working Clydesdale horses, the stable courtyard, demonstration gardens, and a sawmill on the White Cart Water and now the base for Robert Coia, a sculptor in wood. The Park has extensive forests as well as open pasture land, and botanical specimens to keep the enthusiast totally absorbed.

I and the family including Finlay and Brodie (our younger daughter's 'charges') spends many happy hours each week in Pollok Country Park and I have just under 1000 images taken over the years within the Park. So I make no apologies for including the family in some of my shots posted on site here as the above shows.

What beautiful gardens and house. I can see why you go there so often. It must be close to where you live. And a wonderful place to take the family. How nice they allow dogs. A beautiful image you've captured.

Finlay and Brodie are always welcome to make appearances here on ePZ, Ronnie, they are becoming quite 'regulars' on site, and who knows, maybe before too long Finlay will be joining as a member, too Wink Carol

Nice shot with added family interest and no need to apologise for that. I think that everyone who comments on your posts has become very fond of the dynamic duo, Finlay and Brodie.

Your description of Pollock Country Park makes me think that I should make the effort to visit there before we depart the UK forever, but if that doesn't happen, I will just look out for your posts.

This is a lovely composition, Ronnie, with the bright rhododendrons either side, and your subjects in the middle, with the ornamental garden and house ahead. Although we don't see any faces, we know who they are. In fact, I knew this was yours from the thumbnail.

P.S. Forgot to mention, re your comments on those cliffs behind the beach huts in my upload, they were in parts crumbling away. On walking back from Shanklin to Sandown on the cliff top footpath, a couple of sections of the path were fenced off due to it being dangerous Sad
