Gunby Hall Gardens & The Wood Carver's Art.

We visited Gunby Hall in Lincolnshire recently, walked around the gardens and watched the wood carver at work.

Around the gardens.

Gunby Hall is owned by The National Trust.
First view of the Hall as you park your car.

Eryngium, or Sea Holly.  Still attractive long after it's flowered.


These ladies were enjoying a warm spot in the gardens.
(They kindly gave me permission to photograph them and put the picture on my blog).

The Dovecote.

A croquet set is always left out for visitors to try their hand.

The Wood Carver.

In a building in the courtyard is the wood carver's workshop.

Is that you Derek?  (Private joke).

Should have gone to "Specsavers"?
(Other Opticians are available.)
