The light was weird.. sometimes grey skies, sometimes a bit of sun, but often glary making photography a bit of a challenge
Had a great wander around the gardens..
We walked around the Mill area where there a few pine trees.. ah, what's that I hear/
Mistle Thrust, Redwings and a very fast and flighty Goldcrest.. just lovely to see.
Various fungi.. but don't know the names..
and then back into the more formal gardens
Lunch, and a very tasty scone for lunch
Back through the car park to this relatively new area - the Wild Play Area for children.. Really good use of the space and plenty of areas for children to explore and experience.
Last time I was here, this sculpture was in the process of being .. sculpted. I really like it!
