Last Thursday the Sun was shining and I found myself with a couple of hours to myself, me being me, I grabbed my camera and out the door I went. I don't waste time as I don't often get much to myself so I use every minute of it.
One of the gardeners hard at work at Packwood
There were some lovely Autumn colours at Packwood, one trailing plant up the side wall was especially colourful. My photos do not do it justice as it looked so beautiful with the early morning Sun shining down on it.
The Sun just came out from behind a cloud here and made the colours all the brighter.
After taking a few photos around the house, we headed for the kitchen garden as neither of us had seen it. The scarecrows were great but I must say, I loved the hanging champagne bottles the best. I have not seen them like that before and thought it was quite effective. Shame they were not full :)
Again a lot of plants had been pulled for Autumn but there was still plenty to see.
Julia and myself both headed off home taking plenty of pictures of scarecrows and all sorts of other things. I had really enjoyed my time there, in this busy World, people don't stop to talk to other people any more, especially strangers but Julia had and I was really pleased she did.
I did really well this week for meeting new people and having interesting chats :)
A few more photos from that day.
I love the Autumn colours
I got very wet knees taking this one but wet and muddy knees have been a normal thing when out taking photos this month.
I can't remember who said it, Julia or myself but we mentioned the possibility of scarecrows at Baddesley Clinton but then dismissed it. We shouldn't have...I couldn't help myself, I knew I didn't have much time but a quick look around wouldn't hurt. It was on my way home anyway :) check my next blog.
Julia thank you for a lovely day, hope to see you again sometime x
