Burton Agnes Hall- 2016

I love the colours and textures in this door.

Next weeks prompt is Headgear. I have no ideas for this one and I thought of it. Doh!

Love it if you shared a door with us and left a link in the comments. Can’t beat a good door picture.

Happy Snapping!

Snowdrops at Burton Agnes Hall

I had heard that the snowdrops at Burton Agnes Hall were spectacular. Yesterday the sun was shining, so off we went for the first outing of the year to see for ourselves.

The Hall is a rather grand Elizabethan House, closed still for Winter cleaning.I love those chimneys!

Nearer the house are the formal gardens and a wonderful walled garden. Here’s the view from the rather magnificent Gate House.

I need one! There is also a children’s section with outside games and around them I spotted my second flower picture.

I thought that one so gorgeous I bought one for our garden. And I have some other rather nice photos which will appear throughout the year in the 52 week photo challenge! I was rather tempted to use the last picture of the house next week under the prompt Home!! Imagine. … No thanks, think of the dusting!
