.....is his castle."
Sir Edward Coke (1552-1634)
|This castle is a man's home!|
On the mention of A Brit in Tennessee, we decided to take a trip to investigate Castle Gwynn, built by an individual, and still not complete. We toured the first floor of the interior, plus enjoyed the grounds.

There was a tapestry display on the first floor. I took several pictures, but this one seems to be the clearest one.
|I thought the unicorns most appropriate for a castle.|
There were several unusual items of decoration in the castle.
|Do you have one of these decorating your house?|
|Or one of these?|
The grounds were lovely, with a garden and a waterfall.
|Begonias in full bloom.|
| Cooling for a very hot day!|
We were able to take City Girl along with us, so that added more fun to the trip.:-)
I have noticed new followers! Thank you so much for coming along. I truly enjoy your comments!

"Summer set lip to earth's bosom bare,
And left the flushed print in a poppy there."
What a fun outing. How nice that you could take a little visitor with you too. Fabulous pictures.ReplyDelete
