Wild flower time at Lowther

There's not much narrative to write about this visit as I think I have given a detailed description of the history of the place in a previous blog on the 10th of May this year. Just a word though to congratulate the members of the Lowther Trust for what they have achieved over recent years. From near dereliction and abandonment, the place has been transformed in to one of Cumbria's finest tourist attractions. The summer meadows are always worthy of a visit and this years display was interspersed with a WW1 exhibition. The tearoom serves one of the best cappuccinos you could ever wish for and the food is also top notch.

I think I may have left my visit a bit too late as I was hoping there would be more poppies in the meadows but the display was brilliant none the less. I hope you enjoy the photos I took and hopefully I will be blogging on Lowther again in the autumn with all its golden colours and tones.

Again, I don't really think many words are needed for this blog. The photos tell the whole story of one of the best drives in the UK. ...
