Last day of hols

The weather forecast didn't bode well and, having a long(ish) journey back tomorrow off we went to a reasonably local National Trust Garden - Knighthayes Court and House. This is one of my favourite gardens and I can never tire of the lovely views, beautiful plants, the lily pond and the beautiful wooded area beyond the house.

Saw Buzzards circling overhead; Mr. Chaffinch joined us for lunch and Mrs. Blackbird was foraging in the Kitchen Garden. Chiff-chaffs were singing and at one time, three could be heard; couldn't see them as they were safely hidden high up in the trees.

A great end to a lovely week in glorious Devon.

What shall I miss most? - the sound of the Swallows as I awake each morning - fantastic! And looking out of the doors over the fields at the cows and horses; birds flying across the lane as I approach and the rabbits scurrying into the fields. Great stuff!

Birdy visitors
