This week’s Photo Gallery is Colour. Just one colour, any colour. I thought you might like this view of Lindisfarne Castle from Gertrude Jekyll’s garden. I loved the blaze of colour hidden behind stone walls on a fairly bleak landscape. A few weeks ago we all spent a happy Sunday afternoon wandering around Lindisfarne before meeting friends in Beadnell for dinner. I’ve been over the causeway to Holy Island several times over the years, often for work, but for some reason none of the rest of the family had ever been across. It was very busy – lots of tourists on a sunny day – but that didn’t seem to matter. The little garden was a gem.
I went over to Lindisfarne once. It was lovely, especially during the wait for the AA to come and get me back into my car having locked the keys in the ignition…… Ooops
Hope your car was on the mainland side – you could have had a very long wait otherwise!
Andrew and I went to Lindisfarne and loved it, even though it was pouring with rain! And of course we bought meade- isnt there a set of illuminated manuscripts at Lindisfarne? like the book of kells but not kells
Having read this I thought it was really enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together. I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worth it!
