Our aim as a family this year is to visit more National Trust properties than we did last year. In 2018 we were very bad at visiting places but we want to correct this for 2019. The first one that we ticked off the list was Bateman's National Trust which is the former home of Rudyard Kipling.
I thought I’d try something a little different this year. With #MySundayPhoto ending at the end of 2018 I wanted to keep posting on a Sunday and so I think I’m going to post my photos from the previous week that I’ve shared on Instagram.
My focus this coming year really is on Instagram and growing that. It’s the social media platform that I enjoy the most. Instead of sharing photos everyday what I’m finding works for me is sharing a photo every other day.
Sheffield Park is quite possibly my happy place, it's so beautiful no matter what time of the year you visit. At the moment it's bursting with colour especially the waterlilies.
The waterlilies are looking amazing across all the ponds at @sheffield_park_and_garden, make sure you pop along to their Waterlily Festival starts on Saturday 9 June.
Honestly it won't disappoint.
It's at this time of year when National Trust gardens really come into their own, the flowers, the trees and the wildlife.
Our local garden Sheffield Park is simply stunning, they have the most beautiful waterlilies filling the ponds. Mix this with the wonderful rhododendrons their really isn't a better sight at this time of the year.
National Trust properties and gardens are one of my favourite places to visit, they're always looking so perfect. Just down the road from us is the wonderful Sheffield Park and the other afternoon it was looking stunning.
Across one of the lakes, the waterlilies were really showing off. Over the next month, they've got their annual waterlily festive and it looks like it will be amazing.
