More From Newnham Paddox, Monks Kirby


Taken last Sunday.  No sunshine but plenty of daffodils.


Carrying on from yesterday, here are more photos from around
this wonderful park, designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown 
between 1745 and 1753.


Not far from this location is another lake and, yes, more daffodils.


Daffodil Sunday in a charity event giving support
to six local churches and takes place at Newnham Paddox
by kind permission of The Earl & Countess of Denbigh.

It seems like a beautiful place to take a stroll in the Spring amongst the '...host of golden daffodils'

You do live in a very special and very beautiful place. And your photos are gorgeous (sometimes it helps not to have sun as you don't have to fight the immense contrast.)

These are lovely pastoral scenes.

Those are the perfect scenes in the tranquility. I like the boat by the water and the small house in the green.
Your header is fabulous!
Have a good new week,

Capability is a peculiar nickname. Beautiful spring shots, Lauren. The daffodils look very pretty indeed.

More Monks Kirby, my home village! This is in fact the grounds of the Feilding family, aka the Earl of Denbigh.
