The Nnational Trust property near Wimborne, Dorset. I'm hoping to revisit the estate later this month to enjoy the illuminated gardens. This shot is from April 2007.

Your image is crisp as a postcard, Alan.
Alan: Thank you; I do try.
A lovely shot! I bet it's really beautiful illuminated!
Alan: I went there last Christmas to see how the house was decorated. This will be the first year that they have illuminated the gardens.
quel magnifique bâtiment, j'aime beaucoup l'architecture.
Alan: It makes me think of some the French grand houses in some ways.

This is a fine shot. Nice place in charming surroundings
Alan: Thank you. It has connection with Corfe Castle from memory, and to the Houses of Parliament.

I like the English flag flying...just in case you weren’t sure.
Alan: The house does make me think of some of the grand French houses so that flag is to say THIS IS ENGLAND! Tres bon.

An impressive building! What does mean the word 'esatte' = estate?
Alan: Ah.. oh dear, yes, I mean "estate". It has connection with Corfe Castle from memory, and to our Houses of Parliament. Thanks, Philine.
A proper little country home... smile
Alan: It is a fine estate; we are lucky that all people can enjoy it.
Lovely house and grounds. Well worth another visit
Alan: I went there last Christmas to see how the house was decorated to get some ideas for our bijou residence. This will be the first year that they have illuminated the gardens; I just hope the place is not crawling with kids.
What a lovely building. Nicely captured, Alan.
Alan: Thanks, Frank. It has connection with Corfe Castle from memory, and to the Houses of Parliament.
Wouldn't the gardens be dormant? Why illuminate them?
Alan: Perhaps it will be in form of a light show rather than simple illumination of the vegetation. Time will tell!
We had a great day out here a few years ago, it is beautiful both outside and inside.
