Bateman's National Trust | Getting Some Fresh Air

Bateman's National Trust | Getting Some Fresh Air

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.

#MySundayPhoto - My Photos from the Week

#MySundayPhoto - My Photos from the Week

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.

The View of Sheffield Park

So it's meant to be a little bit cooler today which is very welcome after about 40 days of back to back heat. 

Everything is in need of water, there are fields around here that were lush green a few weeks back and now look brown. 

This is Sheffield Park from a few weeks back. 

Waterlilies

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. 

The Calm and Peaceful

When you've been in a city for a break and come back to the countryside you realise just what you've got. The fresh air, the open green spaces and the lack of huge crowds. 

We're so lucky to have this on our doorstep and I think sometimes we forget that. 

All the Colour

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.

Favourite #MySundayPhoto of October

So we've entered November and that means it's time to pick a photo from the brilliant #MySundayPhoto link ups and this week my favourite photo is this one from Mum of Three World.

I love the colours in this and sums up October perfectly.

I just can't get enough of autumn colours. The drama in the clouds, the colours in the trees...it all makes for the perfect time to get outside taking photos. 

If you've been lacking inspiration or lost a little passion with photography this time of year is the perfect time to fall back in love.

Weird Sky

What was up with the sky yesterday? 

The sky pretty much in all of the South of England has a yellow/red glow about it. To describe it best I would say that it felt like an eclipse. 

This photo probably doesn't do it justice.

Oh, autumn what has happened to the weather? 

Last week it was lovely and now it's just wet and horrible.
