The Great Gate and entrance Gatehouse.
The Sunken Gardens.
The Great Lawn.
Hydrangeas were still in bloom but past their prime. There must have been over a hundred though.
A large bronze of Queen Elizabeth I has been added since my last visit. It looked like it had been in that spot forever. I thought it was ideally situated.
The Crepe Myrtles along the entry walk and in the sunken gardens were severely pruned to achieve the round globe shape. I've seen Crepe Myrtles that have been butchered but these looked good and in bloom later this summer they will be stunning.
