this is a magnificent composition of this very beautiful scene Chris....petersmile
Chris: Taken at the time of the men's final at Wimbledon, we had the world to ourselves..
I would definitely feel "retreated" there, Chris!!!
Chris: You'd love this place Ginnie. Maybe one day..

If our rain gives us green scenes like this, let it pour!
Chris: This is Minterne Magna gardens Lisl. The attached church contains memorials to the Napiers and Churchill families, including, interestingly, the first Winston Churchill. The memorials are so grand that they are out of all proportion to the size of the building itself

What a splendid view. I had to Google for Minterne Magna but now I know where it is. A delightful setting.
Chris: Out in the middle of nowhere really, a lovely place

A beautiful place...I would not be surprised if you claimed to see pixies, fairies and elves here, Chris.

I think Benchy would enjoying playing his End-game here...
Chris: Now there's a thought, I could chuck him in the lake..
I have never heard of these gardens Chris. From your snap they look delightful
Chris: And this is but a tiny fraction of them too
This is a very fine snap Tiff. It invokes a great sense of peace and wellbeing.
Chris: I thought that too Chad. The whole world was watching the men's final at Wimbledon when I took this, hence the absence of homo sapiens
Nicely composed sir!
Chris: Thank you Frank

What an idyllic looking place. A lovely picture Chris.
Chris: Around 99% of the people in the UK were watching the Wimbledon men's final when I took this Anne - bliss!
