We returned from our caravan on that occasion to meet up with some of our family for a Mother's day outing! My eldest had found out about a garden that we had never visited not so far way from where we live - Abbeywood Gardens. I think it is mainly an attraction as a wedding venue and for the restaurant/tea room. The formal gardens are beautiful and as well as that there is a woodland area and an arboretum planted with new trees.
There is also a small play area in front of the house that is used by wedding guests.This is eldest son with Diesel the Frenchie and middle son with GD on the trampoline!!
After the family had left hubby and I went back to the tea room, not just so I could join Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday………
but because we really needed a drink!
We also managed to squeeze in a scone, hubby went for jam and cream while I stuck to butter with mine!
I think we will be back here again in the Summer and Autumn!
The next day, still in a holiday mood as the weather stayed sunny, we decided to visit Dunham Massey before our shopping trip(it is 'sort of' on the way)
It was a lovely calm day
Seeing the Fritillaria was a real treat!
We had a lovely walk then it was back to the reality of chores!!!
We are hoping to visit a castle later this week with two of our grandchildren!
Have a great week and Happy T Day, Chris
