Springtime at Markree

Markree CastleA couple of weeks ago I needed a garden with spring flowers as I had an idea going around in my head for a spring photo. I also needed a small child for the photo. Luckily two people came to my rescue; the first was my friend Mandie and her lovely daughter, the second was Markree Castle who said I could use their gardens.
