This time, there was a stately greeting.
The house is splendid.
But once again, it was the grounds I enjoyed best. I concentrated on the walled garden.
|The wall being put to good use|
Deep blue was not the only option.
There was a glorious pergola smothered in honeysuckle. Some varieties had almost chocolate coloured flower buds.
The avenue to the walled garden allowed glimpses of the fountain.
So, after a lovely walk around the grounds, and some loitering to check all the delegates had got back on the coaches, it was goodbye to Castle Howard.
