A wonderful day spent at Muncaster Castle in the Lake District. The gardens were beautiful even though the heavy rain had taken its toll on the plants. This is a view from the terrace and a day when the blue sky showed itself for a few hours.
Thank you so much for your comments on my first landscape..I still don't feel very at home , I think I need to find a bit of confidence ! Smile
I am so busy I feel as though I am on a treadmill but I will catch up with you all very soon, I promise !
