Audley End

Yesterday felt like Spring today more like February....

Anyway I awoke to dull grey and a bit of rain. GREAT.

So what to do? Well I haven't been to Audley End since mid February so off  I headed.

The garden at the back of the house as plenty of colour and the fountain was working.












There were plenty of ducks by the lake/river


Also Swallows which were nice to see. I bet they wished they were somewhere warmer. I DID!! And so I wandered to the walled garden...



What a difference..... APPLE BLOSSOM































 



As I had driven home through Finchingfield yesterday I was certain I saw some baby mallards so I went in search......

and yep there were. There were 6 swimming about and I saw a dead one....

Such lovely photos. How fortunate you are. Don't take shots in the city. These are your glory.
