Autumn at Elvaston Castle

Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all well and warm...hugs
It is hazy sunshine here at the moment, can't make up it's mind!

As previously said, I went for a hobble at Elvaston Castle on Friday, these are just a few of the 54 photographs I took :o)



 'Twas very difficult to get a decent photograph of the Golden Gates because of the strong sunlight!
 



 This monkey puzzle tree trunk reminded me of an elephant's foot :o)
 

 I have never seen yellow berries on holly before, there were some love orange ones too but couldn't get a clear shot of the. The berries were in various stages of ripeness.

I hope you enjoyed this little stroll arond one of my favourite places :o)

What a lovely collection of photos Jackie. As soon as I saw the Monkey Puzzle tree I also saw an elephants foot. We have a yellow berried Holly and I think it's called A Yaupon Holly.

Hope you have a good Sunday.
