Just 18 months into our photography journey and a few cameras later, we headed for London to visit Eltham Palace Gardens which is owned and maintained by the English Heritage.
At that particular time, we were told no photos in the house only in the gardens. Which was rather a shame because the entrance hall to Eltham Palace is just grand. But I think photos are allowed now, so we might just have to do another visit.
After visiting the house, we headed outside to the gardens… Oh what a surprise … the beautiful landscaped gardens had to be explored!
And it was during that walk, these peonies caught my eye. And thought they would be ideal for Becky’s #walkingsquares and HeyJude’s Colours of Cornwall -Textures. It was the textures and the softness of these beautiful peonies that I absolutely love. Everything has a texture, whether it be smooth or rough… there is the texture of the petals.
Eltham Palace is surrounded by a moat. If you face the main entrance to the house, the left side and top side are filled with water features, whilst the other two sides are landscaped gardens.
Spanning the left-hand side is a stone bridge, and on the right-hand side is a wooden bridge spanning the landscape gardens, that you can cross and there. You can also walk around the landscape gardens that make up the moat.
I highly recommend Eltham Palace gardens for a visit… and there is also an outdoor cafe.
