Springlike day at Dunham……………….

The weather recently has been pretty erratic to say the least, one day snow, the next day rain quickly followed by blue skies and bright sunshine. Well, yesterday was a blue skies and sunshine day so we took the opportunity to visit Dunham Massey, a National Trust property about twenty minutes from where we live.

Despite arriving just after 10.30am, there was already a queue to get into the car park which we should have expected as it is “half term” for local schools and the park is a favourite visit for families.

With grandson in tow we walked up past the lake and on to the garden to undertake “The Curiosity Garden” walk (prices are steep if you are not a National Trust member!). Despite it being so early in the year there was already a carpet of Snowdrops, Daffodils were making an appearance and various other flowers had started to appear.

At one point on the walk a Robin appeared on a branch and I managed to get fairly close to get some good photographs of it, in fact it seemed to pose for me as I fired away with my camera.

At one point Seb, our grandson did a disappearing act causing momentary panic as we searched for him, then I spotted him sneaking through the bushes…………panic over!!!!

The day concluded with Seb again building his Hobbit residence as well as stomping through whatever mud he could find…………ah, the joys of childhood.

Below are some of the images I captured on our walk.
