shock horror...

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great Jubilee day yesterday well for all you British amongst us anyway, everyone else I hope you had a fantastic day too...ok now don't all faint...shock horror there's no card today as I really wanted to show you these amazing views of Glenveagh National park...its a stunning place isn't it, I must admit we went a little ott on the photos though these are a teeny fraction, we took 97 lol...the top one is just under the visitors centre and is the first view across Lough Veagh towards the castle...beautiful isn't it...although it wasnt a sunny day it was warm and dry and I think the photos turned out ok...what do you think?

this one is from the formal garden looking down towards the castle...this is across from the castle and is the Orangery, the arch is made of wood and is a beautiful frame for the stunning formal garden

ok hands up everyone including us who want to live in this gardeners cottage at the top of the formal garden...its empty but we were willing to move in then and there...how amazing are those poppies

these next two shots are my wonderful Phil's 'arty' shots, I was sitting below the castle chatting to a lovely American woman and her Husband who were touring Ireland, they were from Illinois...and it turned out we were staying at the same hotel...weird eh lol...Phil climbed to the top of the turrets to take this stunning shot across the Lough...are you impressed, I am

another arty shot from Phil again, this is a statue in the formal Victorian garden, would you believe he lay on his back to get this shot...its a fabulous shot though isn't it...ok I wont make you suffer anymore photos now although I wish I could show you them all, it really is a beautiful place...Im having a craft room day today, I have so much to catch up on and I will be back tomorrow with a card I promise...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
