A Trip to Harewood House ( Part Two)


Back to our visit to Harewood House and this is the beautiful Himalayan Garden with waterfalls and lots of pretty trees. Plenty of good smells here too and so much to see I had to keep looking round to see I wasn't missing anything.


We also had a furtle around the vegetable and fruit garden. The gardeners were still planting and weeding but there were some things to see like this early asparagus showing through the earth:


                                     And the globe artichoke starting to open up:


                                     There was pretty blossom on the apple trees too:


                              Then we left the garden through this doorway in the wall:


                                   And headed back through the Himalayan Garden:


Some little peeps were using these stones to cross the stream but we used the bridge :-)


                  This is Saoirse who was getting a bit tired by now after our long walk.


                                                     "Is it time to go home now?"


                                I was busy looking at this strange plant that eats insects!!
It is called a pitcher plant and has a sweet smell to attract insects but when they come to investigate they fall in and get eaten - we kept well away from that for sure. 

Anyway all that talk of eating made my peeps feel peckish so it was off to the Courtyard Cafe for refreshments.

                   And then back home to see the others and have a well deserved snooze :-)
