This Christmas

It'll probably be raining here .... again.
But my daughter and her young family have jetted off to sunny South Africa for 4 weeks -
its summer there, but this autumn and before the rain put a damper on things we were able to spend some days out together and that included trying out the new bike that little un got for her birthday.

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
