      1. I had stop watching the beaver story as Malina started asking me questions I couldn’t answer, not without spilling my tea 🙂

  2. An eclectic selection of garden ornaments and not all to my taste, but it looks like an interesting place for a wander, regardless of the time of year.

    1. Yes though I should think this time of year will be better, lots of dormant flower bushes and the like when we went.

  3. The weather may have contributed to a slightly creepy ambience! Would be nice to see the garden in flower, of course, but good to see it this way to appreciate the other features.

  4. I liked the Imp. He looks cheeky!
    An Elvis scarecrow is rather extravagant, but as long as it works…
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Elvis!I love sculpture in gardens…especially things like the imp and the head…little surprises hidden away. I went looking for a sculpture by Pierre Huygens on Malta last year but arrived too late to see it….its a figure like one of the ladies here but its head is made of a beehive (i think) so its organic, part of the environment. Thanks for the stroll!

  7. I’m not sure about him, either, Fraggle; but I liked the ladies that came later. And delighted to see Crook House has a Gregory! Super photos – as always – desperately trying to catch up with comments (which, of course, I never will).
