This is a magnificent garden created by the Duchess of Northumberland next to the castle. It was opened in 2001 and the roses for the rose garden were supplied by David Austin.

The garden has a stunning central cascade fountain, a walled ornamental garden, bamboo maze, water sculptures, woodland garden, cherry orchard and a poison garden.

I have a yearly pass and go to the garden frequently. Today the rose garden was just coming into its prime.

This photo is from last year.

Fabulous! More photos, please.

When I read "water sculptures," I was intrigued, google-imaged the words, and found this amazing photo:

Oh wow! That is amazing, but I'm not sure I understand it. What part is real and what is reflection, and what causes the vortex?

I have no idea how it works or how big it is, but it's an amazing picture.

OK here are some pics of the Alnwick garden water sculptures. They are fascinating and very popular.

Here's a vortex one.

The sculptures were designed by William Pye. Here they are in the serpent garden.

I'm always fascinated to visit the garden in winter to see the structure more clearly - as when the photo above was taken.

Here's a shot of the rose garden in winter. Love how they use the walls and pergola as supports.

Lush is most definitely the word! And now with the once blooming ramblers and other roses at their peak it's simply stunning.
