Lingering Look at Windows: Cheat!

For this week’s Lingering Look at Windows, I am posting an image of the view from of one of the ‘windows’ in a folly at a local garden. It isn’t a window in the truest sense, but it is offering a view out of a structure, so I might get away with it!

To view more of the windows posted this week, head over to Dawn’s blog, The Day After.


  1. Counts as a window to me! You can see out of it can’t you? Painshill is another place I didn’t get to – maybe on my next visit to the grandchildren. When is the best time of year for the garden?

    • Painshill is a landscape garden with a number of follies, not a flower garden, so you can visit it at any time of year. That said, I like it in autumn because you do get some colour with the deciduous trees turning… I shall be posting some more images, hopefully tomorrow!

      • So it might look good in winter then? Look forward to the photos.

      • Oh yes, the first time you see the place, never mind the weather, you are blown away… But a nice sunny day makes it all the more enjoyable! I’m going to post recent images tomorrow, but I’ll probably post some more another time. 🙂

  2. Lovely autumnal view – I had never heard of Painshill Park – just brought up their website and it looks interesting. Thanks for posting.

    • Glad you liked it, and that it made you curious to find out more! I love these landscape gardens… Stowe, Painshill, Wurlitzer Park in Germany, and others the names of which escape me at the moment 🙂

  3. I wanted to comment on your punny comment about the cold butt.
    Nice play on words Pauline had a laugh when she read it and showed me.

  4. Lovely autumn scene through your “window” Sue. Like Jude says if you can see through it, it counts…

  5. It is absolutely a window, a very romantic view through it too I might add. 🙂

    Beautiful view.
