The proposed visit to Attingham Park that I mentioned yesterday went ahead as planned.

The weather was perfect, we (my Mum and I) arrived just before a tour of the ‘Lady Berwick Garden’ was due to take place.  It was an opportunity not to be missed.

Warden, Ron Iremonger took us on the short walk to the garden.  Along the way we learned many interesting facts about the house, estate and gardens.  I will share some of them with you in due course, but for now enjoy the view from the ‘Lady Berwick Garden’ which is quite hidden.  I would never have thought to check out the path that lead there, but now I know ;-)

I will leave you with two pictures from the garden, they are taken from the snowy ground that you can see in the last photo of my previous post.

    Love the reflection of the bridge – beautiful relaxing scenes you’ve captured here Cherie.

    Too pretty–yes, that would be a lovely spot to just “sit” and enjoy the surroundings. Mickie :)

  3. Trees, river, stone bridge…
    Ah, this garden is so quintessentially English! :)

      On a very English estate too :-)

      • Are you a NT member?
        Good for you!

        I went to see two NT sites last year: Corfe Castle & Brownsea Island. :)
        I saw red squirrels on the island!!! :)

          Yes I am a National Trust member :-) I get a lot of pleasure out of it.

          I have not been to either of the places you mention. I have heard about the wonders of Brownsea Island before, but no-one told me about the red squirrels. I hope you got some good pics :-)

          • No, unfortunately I didn’t manage to get their photos!
            These cheeky little fellows were too fast! ;(

            I am going to Dorset again this coming bank holiday. :)
            How about you?
            Hope the weather is going to be wonderful!
