|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.

|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.

|How beautiful. It's so lush!|

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

|And I wish I could convey the scents to you all!|
