That said I could have gone to London to Kensington Palace or the Banqueting House and I've found that both allow photos indoors!!!
So why didn't I? Well it was cold and my bed was warm and inviting and the music on Radio 3 rather good!
I decided I'd go for a wander around Audley End.
There wasn't much variety of birds in front of the house Black Headed Gull, Mallard, Coots and Canada Geese! Oh there was one lone Common Gull.
I wandered off to see the horses and came across....
This was where the Under Gardener lived
As I was heading out of the garden I saw this chap over the other side of the large pond.
A pleasant way to spend a morning!
