Orangery at Trelissick

Wandering around Trelissick Gardens (Cornwall)  in the springtime I came across the house (now open to the public) and this fabulous orangery. Those of you who follow my Earth Laughs in Flowers blog know how much I love flowers and glasshouses – my dream house would have an orangery. Sadly that is not likely to happen as I don’t have the cash for such an addition. Still I can dream. And in the meantime I can drool over buildings such as this. Just look at that stone mullioned full-length bay window and leaded panes.

Is it not a pure delight?
