Mottisfont: The Angel in the Corner

People visit the National Trust's Mottisfont Abbey for many reasons. They may try to go in June to see the best of the National Collection of Olde English Roses.



Others want to tour the ancient house itself and find out about its history.



Lots must miss this angel in the corner of the right hand turret in the picture.



There is also a riverside walk and an estate to roam; a secondhand bookshop I love to browse; and a cafe serving scrumptious home made snacks and meals.

I didn't get there again this year. I'll make sure it's on the list for next year.

That is so cool. I doubt I would have noticed the angel if you didn't point it out.

Your pictures bring back lovely memories for me. When we lived in Hampshire I went there twice. The first time we were a bit late for the best of the roses but the second time was my birthday in June. Superb! Sadly, it was in my pre-photography days so I have no record of it.

That's nice, Sheila. I'm glad I can revive some memories for you, as you so often do for me. Perhaps it's time for another visit for both os us.

All of these shots are just so beautiful in their own way and inspirational in theme.

Thanks Jo. I'm now trying to think how to make an article of it.
