On Our Travels Once Again Colour Coordinated Wildlife?

Oops, it has been a while since our last blog.  Mainly because our travels have been close to home with family visits.  Although always with camera in hand, we like to join in the fun too.:)

A visit in April  

Today I rewind back to a visit to some beautiful gardens of a 17th Century Manor House in Northampton.  Quite pertinent that I choose these gardens to show you now as very soon the best of these gardens will be in bloom and an absolute must to visit in April.

Leading down from the magnificent Manor House is 10 acres of gardens to wander around 
 with beautiful flowers and cute ducklings to keep you amused.:)
you may need to sit a while and take it all in before ........
you move on.... to the bluebell woods which are in bloom mid to late April.  May be sooner this year because of the mild weather?
Incredible.  I have never seen anything like it. 

Oh, I nearly forgot

Amongst the flowing streams, fountains and ponds are the Flamingos in the most amazing colours seemingly coordinating with some of the flowers!

I hope you have enjoyed the photographs of this beautiful garden.  The Coton Manor website will give you lots more info

If you are in the Northampton area, this is a must see. If after all that walking you are in need of a little sustenance, you can grab yourself a cuppa and a bite to eat at The Stableyard Cafe.
