I mentioned in my last post that we visited Temple Newsam last Saturday. It's a place we often go as there's lots of space to give Archie a good walk and run, as well as having plenty to offer us too.
In one of my previous posts about Temple Newsam, I mentioned that a popular feature is the Rhododendron Walk. These bloom in May and June and were absolutely stunning when we visited last weekend.
There's all different colours intermingled with each other.
The Rhododendron Walk takes you right along the lake, and you can see that more are planted on the other side too.
Archie enjoys the wide open spaces that Temple Newsam has to offer. He enjoys being let off his lead and having a good run, but we have to be careful when we're near the lake otherwise he'll jump straight in, he loves water.
I love that Temple Newsam has so much to offer, we often don't see many aspects of it. We don't very often walk around the back of the house, but we did on Saturday. The gardens here consist of formal flower beds with box, yew and beech hedges.
There's a couple of wonderful laburnum arbours in the garden too.
If you're in the area, I can thoroughly recommend a trip to Temple Newsam, and if you visit within the next couple of weeks, you'll be able to see the rhododendrons in all their glory. Well, that's if the rain ever stops.
