THE DOWAGER'S GARDEN

Like some of you, my husband and I
have been rewatching the television
series of Downton Abbey.  I found one
of my favorite spots in Season Four which
happens to be the Dowager Countess
 beautiful garden.

  I saw on line where the house is in real
 life "Byfleet Manor" in Surrey and is for 
sale or at least was for $6.12 million.


I took these pictures with my camera but they
are of my television set as of last night!


I was very sorry the scenes took but a couple
minutes and this lovely garden was not really
shown that much.  I would have loved to see
more.  Too bad Isobel Crawley
didn't ask a few questions and let Violet 
expound on her knowledge!

We do see some lovely flowers just the same!


I wish they had sat down on that bench for tea!
Then there was the sweet young man who wanted
a job helping the garden - thank goodness!  




Well, at least we know that the Dowager liked:

Alliums, delphiniums, hydrangeas,
poppies and what else do you see?

Beautiful garden for sure. I still haven't been able to get to a theater to see the movie.

I see the beautiful flowers, and the sunshine! Not sure
of the plant names, but I enjoy that you captured the
picture to share.

Wouldn't it be lovely to have tea in that garden! I haven't seen the movie yet, but will eventually.

Hmmm, my last day of freedom(Sunday) hubby and I went to see the movie---and we just simply sat back drowning in all the gorgeous details....loved your 'capture' of some of the gardens that must be magnificent!
