A visit to Anglesey Abbey

This afternoon Susanna and I went over to the gardens of Anglesey Abbey. A lovely two hour amble after a very tiring week.
The house from the park
View into one of the formal gardens (statue of Father Time c. 1700)
Narcissus (1848) contemplates, well green stuff . . .
The temple (statue: copy of Bernini's David (1901)
One of the avenues

 An ornamental urn (mid-19th century)

Susanna greets a griffin (c. 1730 from Dresden)

 Resting in the dahlia garden under Apollino - the adolescent Apollo (c. 1800)
