Purple Rhododendron

By BarbaraR
Hi all,
I'm grateful for all the nice comments on the
white rhododendron upload.
As promised, here's a purple one also taken at Hedingham Castle, Essex.

The grounds of the castle are lovely. There is woodland, formal and wild gardens
and a lake.
The Castle's remarkable Norman keep standing 110 feet high, was built c.1140 by
Aubrey de Vere and is still owned by one of his descendants.
There are four floors to explore, including a magnificent Banqueting Hall spanned by a 28 foot arch, one of the largest Norman arches in England. A good view of this splendid room can be obtained from the Minstrels' Gallery, built within the thickness of the 12 foot walls.

Cheers all.
Barbara Smile
