Autumn in the Bagno Park

 

in Burgsteinfurt, a little town nr. Münster

 

The parc "was founded in 1765 by Count Charles Paul Ernest of Bentheim-Steinfurt with the intention to create a summer residence for his family. The initial design followed the tradition of the French garden which imposes strict order and symmetry on the layout....criticism on the excessive density of objects and architectural styles and the rise of the English garden brought about substantial change to the Bagno. Buildings and other objects were removed, new ones constructed; straight ways were replaced by meandering paths, natural looking yet artificial cascades were built, large lawns created and exotic trees planted. The Bagno developed into the most prominent park of Westphalia boasting extraordinary fountains, a widely known chapel, and a lake navigated by a fleet of small yet pompous ships. In a rather modern move, the Count opened the park to the general public."

Today all is a bit more modest, but it is still a lovely park to promenade there as I did last Sunday.

This is a beautiful scene, Philine.

Did your shoes dry quickly? smile
Ah, the essence of autumn...
A beautiful, colorful view! The poem is sad - and I hope wrong!
Joli parc où il doit faire bon se promener.
I love how much it looks like autumn, Philine!

I think autumn will be over quickly this year, Philine. And - what a sad poem
Autumn is so photogenic, Philine, this is a wonderful picture.

I would love to see small animals using this fallen tree as a bridge.

So much colour already. Beautiful.
Isn't that lovely, I would enjoy a stroll through there.
What a pretty autumn scene, Brian. I would enjoy a walk here.
Sorry, I meant, Philine.
I could happily wander here Philine

I would have liked to have seen one of the "small yet pompous" ships. I especially like the the red leaves on the right. I expect the fallen tree is used by animals at least.
