Chanticleer Five in Twelve

This picturesque field may not look like much from this angle during this time of year, but the once apple orchard is now planted with drifts of daffodils and blooming trees. The chairs above are painted to compliment the blooms of the Crabapple and Cherry trees.

Missing the bulb blooms, the Rhododendron was still in flower.

As we keep walking, the chairs take on more landscape prominence, adding a feel of art and a sense of discovery.

This is the rose garden below. It can be seen from the house in the distance.

All the paths are an experience here. They curve and wind, beckoning you to walk further.

And where are we going next… The Ruins.

    Whilst I haven’t been leaving comments on this series of posts so far, I most certainly have been relishing each single one. What a beautiful, remarkable place. I’ve loved everything about it so far, and I can’t wait for more. I wish I could experience it first hand, but your great photos are the next best thing.

    Hi Donna, i hope you are enjoying where you are now. I echo what Bernie said above. And to my curiosity, what is that tree in the 3rd photo to the last. It looks like a tree being trained to be something like a figure. Is it an Indian tree or Polyaltha?

  3. I like the long, winding pathways…=>

  4. Just lovely vistas and more winding paths beckoning…I love the low mounding grass in the last picture in place of lawn.

  5. So beautiful! This seems like a place to walk for hours and find little and big surprises around each corner. Wonderful!

    Now those paths would be a delight to follow – no matter where they lead. Such a beautiful landscape! Thank you for this post.

  8. I love the approach to the ruin—it is one of my favorite parts of Chanticleer. I have taken some of the identical photos. I am always admiring and photographing the chairs under the tree—so peaceful.
