It's been 6 weeks since it started and it's only this week that I've managed to get out and look for things. Of course I hadn't read the list before we went out - or taken a hard copy with me for that matter. However I could read the blog post on my phone which helped. We were visiting Melbourne Hall gardens so I thought I might find the columns.
Mmm. Not so much. I found a column of trees that formed an arch.
I found a column of Lime trees and their shadows.
I found three pools with fountains that you could at a pinch describe as a a column of fountains!
Then we moved on to visit the Staunton Harald estate. And there were a plethora of columns - plus it turned out the instructions said 'architectural columns'. Although landscape gardeners do talk about 'architectural planting'. Here's a door with columns.
And then as we walked down to the lake there were gate columns and their reflection.
Sadly all the lakes we saw were man-made rather than a natural body of water and whilst we paid to get in at a ticket booth I hadn't realised that was on the list.
Still, it's a start. I can cross off #6 on the list. Only another 20 to go!
Thanks for stopping by.
