This weekend was just what I needed in every way. What a difference a couple of days makes, no time pressure or appointments or obligations, just amazing places to explore, with the warmth of the spring sunshine and the care of family.
(No, I have no idea why my two little ones are inside a cushion.)
Beeston woods on Friday. And yes, I did take off my boots and wander around the fields barefoot. Martin laughed at me!
Isn't that Japanese knotweed scary stuff? Even the trees are struggling beneath it.
In the depths of the woods, a daffodil in full bloom! :)
Love this fun orange snack.
Calke Abbey on Saturday. This place is crazy and fascinating, a tribute to the eccentric collector. I wish I could have taken a lot of pictures of the insanity inside the house, I do love that place.
Sunday, Church then lunch with Emma and Chris. Play in the garden, a walk at Elvaston Castle.
