When people talk to me about Alnwick gardens I think of two things, the treehouse and the fountains. In my opinion the photograph above shows the simplest and most elegant fountains in the whole gardens. The way that the smaller one in the foreground leads down its thin path to the larger one in the background. As soon as this part of the garden caught my eye I knew it was made for me to photograph. It took about an hour before the children stopped playing around it and people moved from the bench at the back, but it was worth the wait. Although I would like to re-take the photograph one day with the camera about 6 – 12 inches higher, which would give you more of the path connecting the two fountains.
The Queen Mother’s Memorial Garden
After lunch we took a walk along the Water’s of Leigh and up to the Royal Botanical Garden”s of Edinburgh. They are vast and there is a lot of areas to see. I went to see the newly opened Queen Mother’s Memorial Garden which was opened by her majesty Queen Elisabeth II just two weeks ago on the 7th of July. The garden is fantastic and full of very interesting, colourful and great smelling flowers. The small building you can see in the photo has an extremely interesting interior with a shell pattern on the walls and ceiling. It is worth and look and definitely not what you would expect.
