Chatsworth

As you know from previous posts, we spent our annual family holiday in Debyshire this year. One of our outing was to Chatsworth House, home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Have to say, I've never got quite why the titles don't seem to match up with the geography - for example, Wilton House in Salisbury, Wiltshire is the home of the Earl of Pembroke, which is in Wales. Anyway, I digress.

The week we visited, Chatsworth was holding a 'Florabundance' event celebrating, in particular, tulips and other seasonal flowers. Hence lots of flower pictures. Some of the photos aren't too great (sorry) - the focus on the camera is a bit iffy.

Wow, that picture from the mezzanine is great - the scale of the place and of the artwork on the walls is just immense!

It looks absolutely glorious and obviously I'd love to have a rummage through that rail of antique clobber.
I've never been to Chatsworth which is a shocker considering it's on the doorstep.
