Today, an afternoon off and a trip to Parcevall Hall in Wharfedale (Sarah was doing some photographic experiments but you'll hear all about those in her blog very soon so I won't spoil it).
As usual I focused in on the tiny details like these awesome Fritillaries and Snowflakes so I can't share photos of the overall wondrousness of the beautifully kept gardens, the crystal clear freshwater lake, the immense views from the top of the garden or even the stunning hall itself....
but they were all really lovely and the perfect place to see spring springing up all over the place!
Sarah's friend Nick lives there and does a tremendous job of looking after the gardens and woodlands. After an explore we went back to his cosy cottage for a cup of tea.
It's a real gem of a place and I look forward to going again.
