Spring has sprung...

and we took the opportunity to visit a local attraction near our home, the weather was perfect for strolling the gardens of Wrest Park. Where in the immaculate gardens a french style mansion is set. We didn't get to look around the house because it was closed for a wedding but we enjoyed exploring the gardens.

 

One side of the house


The smell from these hyacinth's are amazing


The pavilion, I was rather taken with this building


I'm not sure why it just had something special about it




there were lots of tiny staircases


leading up and down


a chair to watch the view


pretty huh?!


this mirror has seen better days but I like it


the roof


this is how I imagined myself here, maybe I'd do a bit of sewing


this was the view from the pavilion


and this is the orangery, 
we didn't go closer because getting up those steps with a buggy takes hard work!!


and this is the bath house


I imagine a troll living under that bridge!


and this was Logan's reaction to the whole thing.
The only thing he woke for was for milk in the cafe!

It was a lovely afternoon out and
 we'll certainly be going back to explore more another day.

  2. Hi Elanor,

    I wrote this comment a couple of days ago but alas, it went astray. So here I am again to repeat myself! I loved these photos. It looks like a wonderful day. I would have loved to visit these gardens with. And if you needed help, I could push the buggy. I promise I would be very careful - valuable cargo you know!

    hugs,
    ~ginger
