The changing displays are fascinating, and the sound of falling water is hypnotic.
All the grounds, gardens, fountains, etc., need constant maintenance.
There are 300 paid staff and 400 volunteers to keep the property in wonderful display at all seasons.
The day was beautiful. After five hours of walking, we felt we had seen only a fraction of the gardens, and we would like to return at other seasons.
We took many pictures, and we would be happy to share them. Let me know if you want to see more!
