The sky was blue, the sun was golden.. at Anglesey Abbey & Audley End

What a wonderful day today - a very heavy frost greeted us (thanks Pete for de-icing the car :) ), we set off for Anglesey Abbey.  The Winter Garden was fab in the brilliant sunshine set against a back drop of a very blue sky.

A notice advised us that in Spring next year, new rooms will be open - so a return visit is definitely on the cards.

A few Blackbirds and a small flock of Redwings enjoyed a meal of berries..

as did the Blue Tits..

No idea what type of pheasant this is..

 Hunger then overtook us but the cafe was soooo busy and no tables were available so we headed off to Audley End which, by contrast had about 10 people in the cafe.  A very nice Spicy Parsnip & apple soup, followed by a fruit scone.. which wasn't particularly exciting ..

A wander round the gardens..

A glorious day in the winter sunshine and a welcome break from the gales, heavy rains and power cuts!
