After leaving Malham it was too early to go straight home so there was a detour via Tatton Park to have a picnic lunch and enjoy the gardens.  The picnic lunch had been made up at Beck House and the sandwiches were delicious.

I have visited Tatton Park before so I already have photographs of the place.  This being the case I decided that I would take all of the photos using my macro lens.

    What a gorgeous sofa/bench. Love it!

  2. Is that the RHS garden Cherie?

    The bench doesn’t look very comfortable though. I’d be with the lady on the grass… oh, that sounds a bit threatening… I meant I’d be sitting on the grass like the lady is, but at a respectful distance. Unless she wanted me to sit very close, of course… Anyway… the grass looks a more comfortable place to sit. Although I suppose there is nothing to lean against (unless I could lean against the lady…). Why could I not just make a simple comment and leave it at that?

      For that bench I thing cushions (velvet ones) are needed. If that is a bit too posh there are quite a few comfortable wooden benches around the garden :-)

    It looks like a nice building. I went to North Wales at the weekend & considered stopping here for lunch, As I only allowed myself 90 minutes, I decided against it at the gates and moved on to The River Dee at Chester.
