My Sunday Photo – May 28th, 2017.

We visited Sheringham Park last Sunday but only when I got home did I realise my camera had been on the wrong setting all day (I thought it was my eyes!).

A couple of them sort of came out ok, including this one.

I hope you’re all safe and well.

A Return Visit To The Plantation Garden In Norwich (And Another Wow Moment).

Surrounded by busy roads in the heart of Norwich, walking into The Plantation Garden feels like how I imagine finding an oasis in the desert would be.

The first time I visited in the autumn I was left speechless, which, as Mark will tell you, doesn’t happen very often. I didn’t think that wow moment could be repeated after the first time but then I went back yesterday… and wow. Just, wow.

There was colour everywhere and it’s was so vivid, even on a dull, cloudy day – my photos really don’t do the garden justice. If you’re anywhere near Norwich please go and enjoy it while it lasts.

My parents came with Freya and I for their first visit yesterday (after I saw some beautiful photos on Instagram and suggested we go) and they were amazed too.

It’s nice visiting with them because they are gardeners and can tell me the names of various plants. Freya also enjoys it because you can climb to the top and then walk around the outside along dark paths which she thinks is a bit like being in the jungle.

I’ve included this final one because I think it’s funny. I was supposed to be taking a photo of my parents and Freya for the family album but then I realised how lovely the tulips were and got distracted.

It’s that sort of place.

 

Beautiful Blickling In Bloom.

What do you think of our new home? Not bad, eh? A little small, perhaps, but I think we’ll just about manage.

Hah! I wish.

Although, actually, I don’t. I imagine it would cost a fortune to heat, not to mention the upkeep and that’s before you even get to the cleaning…I think I’m far more suited to living in a small flat.

Anyway, as the headline says, this is the beautiful Blickling Hall, a place we love to visit.

The gardens are always a treat but they were especially so on our most recent trip during the Easter break.

I normally only do specific photo posts on a Sunday but I thought I’d share a few more today as it looked glorious, especially with the bluebells out (and it seems a shame to just leave them sat on my computer).
