Blenheim Palace

This is the backside of Blenheim Palace, which as you can see is beautiful. This is a Duke's estate just outside of Oxford in a town called Woodstock. It is open to the public, we went inside and had a tour, but unfortunately you can't take pictures on the inside. This is where Winston Churchill was born here and this is also where he proposed to his wife. His uncle was the 8th Duke of Blenheim.
The estate is something like 3 miles miles. This waterfall is on the grounds.

These are some wild daffodils, they are springing everywhere we look. Some of the first signs of spring in England. There are a lot of different kinds of wild flowers around here, but these are so bright and tall, they stand out the most.
This sculpture caught my eye, it is very interesting...and kind of creepy.
Us in the inner courtyard.
