We had a lovely walk around the grounds of Hanbury Hall in Worcestershire yesterday. I particularly like the vegetable garden and the hens, as I can safely nurse my self sufficiency urges without actually having to do it. I would still like to have a go at that life style, but the lumbar region may not agree.
So instead I bought a small round squash to cook and some chunky cucumbers from the vegetable stand, and of course I had to photograph these chaps, sunning themselves in the polytunnel.
I’ve posted about Hanbury before, so I won’t repeat the images, but I do like the way they’ve decorated inside the bowling pavilion. Love that green.
The formal gardens are amazing, I know the work that goes into keeping our garden vaguely decent. I so enjoy strolling around looking at someone else’s hard work.
I photographed the yard floor there [ below ] some years ago, but lost the images, so yesterday took some more. I have it floating around in my creative mind that I really want to work more with pattern in the future, when the book projects are made, and these will undoubtedly be part of the arsenal. Pattern, colour, fun and freedom, that’s the way.
