Powis Castle........................................................................................ the gardens

A few more images of the gardens at Powis Castle.

The views from the terraces are fantastic.

Looking towards the woodlands.

The clipped Yew "clouds" are massive... and were originally planted during the 18th century.

 There are statues everywhere... this is Hercules slaying the Hydra.

Now that's what I call a Birdbath!

Looking back up to the castle from the formal gardens.
We must go back in a few weeks time when all the flowers are in bloom... it's a wonderful sight.

Linking to Skywatch Friday and Our World Tuesday

Rather disappointingly small hydra there, needs to have a few more heads and be few hundred yars longer
