Lake District pics

Hi there friends, just popping by to share some pics I took on our recent holiday in The Lake District.
Just too many to add to my last post so I am leaving them here for anyone who may be interested ;)
I am terrible at remembering names of places but if you want to know any I will add them if you ask me !
More cards coming very soon !

(1st 4 pics)

Tarn Hows
The Rhododendrons and Azaleas were amazing.
The smallest house,(it's only half as wide too) it's on a small bridge
 and so tiny!...but someone used to live in it.

Garden we visited, run totally by volunteers!
 Last but not least.
This amazing scuplture (it's very large on a wall in the village) 
was made by a very dear artist friend of mine Michael Edwards.
He was so talented and made such a variety of things. 
I had to take a photo of this one when we drove past it at Heysham
I am so lucky to have been gifted a few of his paintings which I
 will treasure always. 
Sad to say he is no longer with us but his art lives on.
 If you ever visit Lancaster University you will see his
'Stations of the cross' sculptures in the church there. Also a
large sculpture in bronze of birds in Morecambe on the seafront.
His watercolours were just amazing too! he inspires me always ;)
'Spirit of Heysham'
