A Happy Day At Pensthorpe in Norfolk.

My poor blog, it’s feeling very neglected at the moment.

It can’t be helped, sadly. I’ve been using all of my words (and time) to frantically try and finish my submission for the RNA New Writers’ Scheme before Freya finishes school for the summer on Tuesday.

To make up for lack of words, I’m sharing some pictures instead. We had a lovely day at Pensthorpe yesterday, including seeing their new Wetland Discovery area. It is always hard to convince Freya to leave the amazing play areas but even she couldn’t resist the beautiful flowers (and a butterfly or 50).

I hope you’re all keeping well.

I’ll be back!

A Celebration Of Colour At The Plantation Garden In Norwich.

IMG_5104 2With grey sky for the last few days, I felt a bit delirious to find myself not only under a brilliant blue sky but surrounded by colour on a visit to the Plantation Garden in Norwich – and I just had to share.

You can find out more about this hidden gem in the heart of the city in my previous posts here and here but I thought for this one I’d just share some photos. Hope you enjoy them.

If you happen to be in Norwich, the Plantation Garden, in Earlham Road, is well worth a visit (as is the cathedral next door). They are bringing back the outdoor cinema on certain dates in July and August (full info here) which I imagine would be a glorious experience.

I hope you’re having a colourful day too.

 

My Sunday Photo – April 29th, 2018.

A rather predictable My Sunday Photo this week but who can resist bluebells? Certainly not me.

We were supposed to take a family trip to Strumpshaw Fen to see them yesterday but it was raining and neither Freya nor my parents wanted to tramp about in the wet so just Mark and I went for an hour.

Even in the rain, it was lovely.

This is the second year we’ve been to see them at the reserve and, just like last year, I frantically started taking photos of the few dotted about before we rounded a bend and there was just a carpet of blue. It was magical. And the smell! Oh, the smell.

One happy Tara.

I was on a path here (as was Mark). Don’t worry, no bluebells were trampled.
