Sheffield Park... and the sun shone for a bit!

I'd planned to go birding today but wasn't sure the weather was going to be up to much.  So after a quick trip into town I headed of for NT Sheffield Park and Gardens.

I've been many times before in the Spring and Autumn but never in the winter.  Today, as I drove there, the sun came out and, for a while, the wind dropped - it was lovely.  Unfortunately it didn't last for long and after a very nice lunch of Roasted Vegetable Soup and a piece of Carrot Cake, the heavens opened and that, as they say, was that.

I took a few pictures ;)

The House is not part of Sheffield Park Gardens and is not open to the public.  I've often wondered about its ownership and today I discovered this information about it.

Around the gardens there were Christmas decorations... this was the first one!

I found this sheep family when I took a detour to the top of the woods; they were at the edge of the cricket pitch!

You have such beautiful places to visit. The pictures are wonderful. I particularly like that old tree trunk and the sheep family.

A collection of beautiful photos, Tricia. It is too cold here for me to enjoy being out, so your photos are doubly appreciated!
