Wallington ~October 2018 ~ part 2

part 1 HERE

After wandering around the walled garden (see part 1) we then went into the large conservatory and took some photos of the flowers and bits and bobs.

large purple plants flowers.

there were a few different types of Fuschia

 

 

the glass house is definitely full of flowery goodness

 

Basking.

A nice detail set into the wall

“When wearied and overwrought by study or affairs of business, repair to these haunts and refresh your mind by a stroll amidst the flowers”

We left the glass-house and had a wander up to the bird feeding station

a lucky day!

 

 

It was nearing lunchtime for us too, so we walked back up to the house, past the lake and boat shed

 

A heron took flight out of the reeds whilst we were shooting and I managed a half decent shot

 

Stay tooned for when we visit inside the house!

  4. I have tried so many times to get the ‘local’ Heron on camera, with no luck. That was a corker, FR.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Thanks Fraggle. 😱 So much to do! But facing a 2,000 mile drive, worried about snow and ice is the hardest part. Just do it. Right? Right.
