The weather has been decidedly mixed but we've still had some lovely days and stunning sunsets and future promise
And some perfect days just made for strolling round a garden and a chateau garden makes a lovely afternoon out. I don't know how I managed to leave my camera behind but luckily I can show you some pictures that my sister took.
I just love these rows of red grasses - stunning!
These topiary and wood carving figures were just a bit of fun but I thought very clever.
But you can't imagine what a surprise we had when with much branch snapping and leaf- fall a peacock flew/stumbled out of an enormous tree just as we were walking under. We thought at the very least a large branch was breaking. But it was just a peacock.... I think they roost in trees but I'm not sure.
And a little further on we saw the mother peahen with her chicks.
We gave them a wide berth and she was very happy to keep still for the photo.
This is for you Harbill, do you like the vegetable garden?
