Somerset - revisited!

I've finally managed to update all the posts of our week in Somerset. I'm afraid that, with some of our visits, I got rather trigger happy and consequently there's rather a goodly number of pictures to wade through - assuming you wish to that is :D !

I've created links here, in chronological order, to our days out.

Saturday - Wilton House

Sunday - Stourhead and Shelbourne Castle

Monday - The Courts Garden

Tuesday - Athlehampton House and Gardens

Wednesday, Montacute House and Tintinhull Gardens

Thursday, Lacock Abbey and Village

Friday - Barrington Court and Gardens

My goodness - how many memory cards and batteries did you take with you :)
A beautiful collection of photographs - more than snapshots. Architecture, statues, flowers and even some wildlife.

I love the framing of those you took by the lakes. You certainly have an eye for recording a scene, Tricia.

John - I have three x 2gb cards and I nearly filled all of them. I used my laptop (Vista)with the idea I could delete the pics from the cards; but then had a problem transferring the pics by DVD to my PC (Windows PC). So it'll be back to the drawing board. Just as well I hadn't wiped the memory cards!

Thank you, again, for your kind comments. Stourhead was an easy place to photograph being sooo picturesque!

Great stuff Tricia, I have just caught up with a couple of the days I missed, all lovely photos. You really were very fortunate with the weather, I don't think you would have been so lucky this week!

Lovely shots of the houses you visited and I loved all the blooms and the little Chaffinch on the table. Also it was interesting reading about the filming of Cranford and the preparations in the village.

Hi Tricia - it's been a busy few weeks so sorry for lack of visits - rain pattering down on the velux as I write gives me a chance to catch up on some of my favorite blogs! Having lived near Bristol for a number of years before moving to France - many of the locations you visted are old and favorite haunts so great to be able to reminisce! Have fun... Miranda

Tricia I waded through them, and they are a beautiful selection, of an obviously great holiday.

Jan - glad you like the pics. So pleased we were there last week; in this week's weather we wouldn't have been at any of the gardens!

Miranda - hope that's a positive busy :D Glad you had a trip down memory lane - the rain does have some benefits then.

Keith - thanks for your patience and comment - there were rather a lot of them!

Hi C - Yes _- I've visited Wakehurst but not the wildlife reserve as yet. I'm waiting for some better weather before I make contact to gain entry to the wildlife area.
