The Gorgeous Gardens of Cragside Pt. 2 (Plus a Really Cool House)
Carrying on from yesterday's garden post here are more flowers from our visit to Cragside's formal garden and photos of the house itself which I find hard to believe was built in 1863 but my husband doesn't.
Being afraid of heights I got a bit freaked out walking on the foot bridge which you can see in the middle below, but it was the only way to the house from where we were. It's not terribly high so I looked like quite a wuss.
The house boasts a sandstone rock garden that is said to be Europe's largest.
