After a week of illness and staying couped up in doors I decided on the spur of the moment to take the kiddes out for little fresh air and where else to go but my favourite National Trust garden.
It's always beautiful here but I do believe that Autumn has to be my favourite time of year or is that just because it is Autumn because I'm sure when Winter, Spring and Summer are here I feel the same way about those seasons.
We had such a fantastic time looking for all the different shapes of leaves, running and kicking through all the fallen leaves and reading the ghost story, yes that's right we were given the story to read as we walked around the gardens it made it all the more exciting.
(Tallon reading the ghost story to Lily and Flynn)
yes the story was really scary..Hee Hee.
(although Lily always looks pretty pale she's my English Rose).
( Thank you Tallon for Flynn's little bunny ears).
For a impromptu afternoon out a great time was had by us all.
Today (for yesterday) I would like to say a big Thank You to the couple who had the time to stop and talk to the children about all the beautiful colours and the leaves and to the young couple with the little baby who stopped and let my three tell them all about the slimy creature hiding behind the lady in the Grotto.
