The Orangery

I forgot a picture in that last post: The Orangery at Dalkeith House.

It has not been kept up over the years, but this building used to house the citrus fruit trees for the Dalkeith Palace. I was lucky enough to spend a summer at the Dalkeith House (Palace) a few years back, and this was definitely my favorite part of the estate - even in its current state. They are in the process of renovating it to, hopefully, its former glory. I would really enjoy seeing the finish product.
