Sylvia's Garden

By oldgreyheron      
Sylvia's Garden at Newby Hall in North Yorkshire - a place for quiet contemplation. Sandra and I sat for some time on the seat at the centre of this photograph - it was a good place to be!

The second image shows the reverse view, from our seat.


Edit 14/09/14 16:35 - those with keen eyes will have noticed that these two images are not of the same garden (within the Newby Hall Gardens). I moved two quickly... the first is I think the Rose Garden, and the second is indeed Sylvia's garden. One had a fountain at its centre, the other an urn. You were all kind enough not to point this major discrepancy out to me!

Two beautiful images of what appears to be a beautifully laid out and sculptured garden Mike.

Who Is Silvia?

Who is Silvia? what is she,
That all our swains commend her?
Holy, fair, and wise is she;
The heaven such grace did lend her,
That she might admirèd be.

Is she kind as she is fair?
For beauty lives with kindness.
Love doth to her eyes repair,
To help him of his blindness,
And, being helped, inhabits there.

Then to Silvia let us sing,
That Silvia is excelling;
She excels each mortal thing
Upon the dull earth dwelling:
To her let us garlands bring.

William Shakespeare
Just wondering who the Sylvia is or was?
A delightful place to sit and contemplate life.
