A Visit To Croft Castle

p1020672

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon at the National Trust property, Croft Caslt and Parkland, near Leominster today. We had never visited this site before so it’s always nice to find somewhere new.

It’s a 1,000 year old estate that has been in the hands of the Croft family for the majority of that time. The history of the estate reveals a family that have been involved in many of the great conflicts that have moulded the shape of Britain as it is today. From the Norman conquest, through the War Of The Roses, The English Civil War and the two World Wars.

There is a fascinating family tree on display inside the castle.

Here’s a couple of my photographs from the day

Getting the garden together 2016

Finally the weather seems to be improving and I’ve been able to make a start on the garden for the summer.  Celebrated with a few new plants. Shown here with a couple of wider shots of the garden as it stands. Watch this space for how things develop…

Busy Bees at Dyrham Park

Had a couple of hours at Dyrham Park this afternoon, always a lovely place to visit.  Nice to see the bees keeping busy in the stunning gardens.
