Exbury bench

Taken last autumn at Exbury Gardens, which are - here -

Exbury is the home of the de Rothschild family. It was bought by Lionel Nathan de Rothschild in 1919,  who developed the gardens which are famous for Rhododendrons and Azaleas.

There is a lot of information both about the de Rothschild family and the history of the gardens on the - Exbury Website -

nice oak specimens by the look/shape and a maple on the turn? rhododendrons and azaleas are too hard to identify for me, the all look pretty similar (unless you is a purist) and there are soooo many within the genus!

Yes, what a peaceful place for a bench. Great place for an afternoon nap.
I can almost imagine being there. It's a wonderfully peaceful photo.

i LOVE trees like this. so fun to look at. don't have trees like that around here.
Aaha - perfect postcard shot. Very well done Ellie.
This photo is a perfect picture of peace and tranquility! The composition is just perfect. I love that solitary bench under the shade of the huge tree. I'd love to sit on that bench and read a book on a lazy sunday afternoon smile

oh Ellie, this is nice. I like how you've framed the little chair.
I love it. One day you'll take one with me sitting on that bench...
What a beautiful shot. So very calm and peaceful. A good place to sit and listen to nature...and read a good book.
This really couldn't be any more English. Lovely composition! Whoever placed the bench there knew a thing or two about bench placement smile
That's a very nice picture Ellie !! This tree is absolutly fantastic, as well as the colour of its leafs... this bench too... there's something peaceful about it... almost "zen" !!

This feels so expansive and cozy at the same time, Ellie. It calms me to look at it. And you certainly have the gift of framing your compostions perfectly!
Hi Ellie smile
This is a really beautiful and quiet place. The picture is very well done (composition, color management...)- I'd like to read my newspaper right here under this wonderful tree !!

Well weighted composition and excellent colours. Like it a lot.

Afternoon nap indeed - park bench looks too hard for that.
Nice picture Ellie. Well framed. The bench looks so very small next to the giant tree.
i wish i was sitting there!
lovely shot Ellie, nice framing and composition.

This is really very pretty. It could be a painting!
Very pleasant, and so britishÂ…

Something "impressionist" about the leaves. It is a very pleasant landscape too.
great image...
i love the colors, the perspective, arangement..
it's like a dream, the time stand still, a perfect place to relax, to "hide" from the daily stress tongue
perfect shot :d
I like this picture very much. The contrast of colors and the perpective are great.
