Autumn colours

Today, in spite of early rain, was perfect for a walk round the Mansion Gardens and a quick lunch at the Gardener’s Cottage Cafe. It was mild enough to sit outside. There is always something new to see and the gardeners were busy planting new trees.

I always love walking into this part of the Walled Garden. The scent is sublime.

Plenty of squirrels bounding around!
For more photos of this walk, see the Gallery. Or better still, have a walk in the park yourself! Diana Smith
