Mount Grace Priory~part 5

After we visited the house and the priory we explored the estate which has a beautiful garden and also area with a lake and wildflowers.

you can maybe tell I quite liked the Japanese maples!

Further out from the beautifully kept gardens, is a kind of wilderness area where we saw geese and duck families..

It was at this point I knew I had to purchase a longer zoom lens!! These shots are all taken with the 18-55mm kit lens. You can see the babies better if you click on the pictures.

Next time will be the last trip to MGP, and we’ll be having a look at the flowers and see what the macro lens can do.
