But my daughter and her young family have jetted off to sunny South Africa for 4 weeks -
This stately home is on my doorstep.
and has lots of lovely walks all around it which you can enjoy for free.
Walled gardens - you can imagine how this garden would have looked in the 19th Century - stocked to the gunnels with vegetables and flowers - the trees beyond are where the fairy rings can be found. However nosey parker thought maybe this was her new home and wanted to explore so off she went its a pity she can't read yet ;-)
Yes that means you too!
be back soon with a visions of lovely ness - well my christmas nest - (what's left of it) :-)
Love Ginny xx
