Macro Monday - The Petworth House Edition

It was the National Trust's Free Day Out last weekend and we made the most of it by a visit to historic Petworth House. As well as the house they also have amazing grounds with beautiful flowers so I give you - Macro Monday - the Petworth edition....

    1. Thank you. The bark was fascinating - I don't know what tree it was though.

  2. Beautiful flowers and one impressive gnarly tree. My favorite shot by far is the first one. Those vivid colors are just out of this world. Gorgeous blue, white, green, and yellow. genie

  4. I do like that Snakes Head - I've only seen these flowers once in the wild.

    1. I'm not sure it was strictly speaking wild - more naturalised - but beautiful nether the less.

  7. I love spring time and the flowers. Only on Saturday we were at a National Trust property here in Scotland and I was taking pictures of flowers too! I love doing the macro capturing the colours and textures! My wee man likes to get close and try and smell them and says they are "pretty" (though I think that is because I say wow look at the pretty flowers) Sorry I'm rambling. Lovely photos x
