Wynyard Gardens – October 2019 – part 2

Part 1 HERE

On the way back through the woods, we came across a few interesting bits and bobs.

Not sure what it is, a wooden castle?
fairy tree
owl
I loved this handbag bird home
View through the woods to the hall
another owl
maybe magpie?

lots of mushrooms everywhere

We got back to the formal gardens, no roses as it was late in the year, but a few bits of autumn colour.

reds
purples
lilacs

For more pictures there’s a full album HERE

Sophie and I hoped to return here in spring and see the rose garden, but as the corona virus is taking hold in the country now as I write, I’m not sure if that will happen.

Stay tooned though, still some more adventures to do!

    I’m not an expert on birdies but sorry, this ain’t a magpie:

  5. Another enjoyable tour. I love the critters stuck into the trees. Here there is a bit of a fad of sticking dolls into trees at impossible-to-reach heights. It’s rather startling to suddenly see a head staring down at you! Just down the street is a mailbox with trains and baby dolls – occasionally rearranged – for our enjoyment.

  9. I think in the first somebody tried to make a tower for a giant chessboard. “View through the woods to the hall” has a very wonderful sky, I was about to clean the screen when I checked it was a bird! it is so perfectly in the axis of the composition. Very serene day : )

    1. There are so many around my part of the country, I am missing getting out to see them so much. Can’t be helped though so will look forward to when we are allowed out again.
