Belsay Photos

We were up in Northumberland for a few days with my rellies last weekend/ I promise I won't bore you with zillions of pics but here are a few of Belsay Hall, gardens and castle.
The rhododendrons were in flower and looking glorious as were the various acers (a fave tree of ours - though the ones on our own garden are a little bit smaller!) - the walk through the craggy gardens from the Hall to the old castle was a real treat - and, when we arrived there - another treat to find suspended from the rafters the fabulous Crystal Horse by Stella McCartney back at Belsay, hanging from the rafters on fine threads and looking magnificent - over 8000 Swarovski crystals went into making this!
That's ooooh, at least a few more than I've got in my bead collection....lol

I'm not a big fan of crystals as ornaments, but this is remarkable! You can see the light reflecting off it, thanks for sharing.
