The tragedies of storm, fire, & impossible costs of up keep
Befall some of the most romantic imposing estates
Opulent design house magnificence will always appeal
Architectural splendour knowing no bounds
Long gone are the days when wealth was this easy
Long to adore the aspiration still
The sadness of ruins should not be lost forever
Still much surrounding history & beauty to enjoy
With thanks to those that still open the doors for us to enjoy
Whether by virtual example such as Silverbirch4444art
Or by physical business arrangements - stand out The National Trust Charity
How else would we experience the likes of my personal favourite Nymans....
from every flame disaster surviving beautifully weathered brick and tile angle
& lush gardens so crafted by hand painted by one of my patients, Mr Cyril Acton
....by taking a little bit of (my heart bleeding still) inspiration back to our own homes.
