September 13

Salisbury Cathedral - spire reaches up 400 feet, the tallest in all of Europe. Built in the 1200's. Wow that's pretty old.

The British Countryside, on the way to Stouhead Gardens.

Stourhead Garden. Unlike any garden I've seen. It wasn't just flowers it was a huge estate that was all hand landscaped, (including digging this big old pond out of the ground), special buildings built, even full grown trees brought in from all over the world to add the to garden. This sucker was built 300 years ago. Professors were saying that the idea of gardens nowadays came from these types of European gardens, only on a smaller scale.
