With the weather failing to behave I spent most of the day at Wallington, the former home, estate and garden of the Trevelyan family, now owned by the National Trust. On of it's finest features is in the great hall where 8 large Pre-Raphaelite depict the history of Northumberland. Another fine feature is the walled garden hidden in the woods which is where I took today's pictures.
Early autumn colour in this valley garden.
The purple boarder comes into it's own at this time.
Heuchera flowers add foreground interest.
While raindrops be jewel these young leaves.
I later drove to Rothbury where I dined at Tomlinson's café and chatted with the owner, Jackie, whom introduced to Epz and on the way captured this scene,
From delicate to rugged in the blink of an eye.
