What a difference a week can make,last Sunday we were blessed with Spring sunshine when this shot was taken in the drive of Lewtrenchard Manor Hotel,today we are enclosed by mist and drizzle.
Magnificently set in a secluded valley beneath the wild tors of Dartmoor, Lewtrenchard Manor is a luxurious country house virtually untouched by time. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, this idyllic family-owned property is steeped in history: the Jacobean manor that now stands in these impressive grounds dates back to the early 1600s.

You've written an interesting note. I've looked at the link you gave to Lewtrenchard and it would certainly be a fine place to stay, eat or have as a wedding venue. But unfortunately it doesn't look as though it would be a place to visit and explore.
Your photograph is delightful, the roadway leading us past some lovely spring flowers and enticingly just letting us have a glimpse of the distant manor house. Lovely dappled light and glorious colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and clarity.

This is certainly a delightful display of spring flowers. The composition is also a delight for the eyes; an invitation to step in and take the air. Beautifully lit and with superb colours and clarity. I wish you and Gladys a pleasant Sunday afternoon.

Cette photo donne vraiment envie d'aller marcher dans la nature. De très belles fleurs poussent tout le long du chemin et embaume l'air. Ta photo donne envie d'aller plus loin.

Hello Les - An idyllic scene and a lovely display of spring flowers. The carpet of yellow and blue look pretty against the fresh greens of the new season. Have a good Sunday and I hope fro a sunny week ahead!

without a doubt it is springtime in full bloom :-) The flowers which you captured at the left side catch an eye with their bright colors and add plenty of simple beauty to this image. I like the road which is leading further into the photo towards the small tower. Very nicely composed and with fresh and attractive colors.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your evening

Charming spring capture with flowers at the front ( Which ones are the yellows ones alway present in fields in Europe)
Well composed capture with the path leading to the wht it seems a quite attractive Manor
Good note and link, great place to enjoy this rural landscape
