There were several large ponds and lakes which were covered with water lilies. I have never seen so many in one place and all out in bloom at the same time!
We like National Trusting and so does Sophie (well at the moment she does) and it gives us a chance to learn a little bit of history in that particular local area. Some fresh air as well.
Sophie could not believe her eyes when she saw the size of this lovely old tree! I tired to find out how old is was but sadly I failed.
These days out are also a chance for us all to take photographs. Sophie especially likes to do this and then show anybody the pictures who is prepared to look at them. I could not resist taking this picture of the budding photographer!!
This is a lovely park and well worth a visit if you are in the area.
We borrowed my sister-in-laws picnic basket and had a lovely little lunch just outside the property. We enjoyed doing this all week so much that we ended up ordering our own picnic basket from a local farm shop. I just hope it arrives before the weather turns horrid!
I have one more place to show you then a wedding story later in the week.
Take care and have fun.
