Thursday 27th October 2016
Once again, apologies for the delays in posting. I was almost up to date and then everything went to hell in a handcart again.
So, back to a foggy Thursday in October. I took Jez and Max to Kingston Lacy for our walk. I didn’t actually expect it to be foggy. It had just about cleared at home and I drove through Broadstone and Corfe Mullen in bright sunshine. But the fog had closed in again by the time we got to Kingston Lacy. This was the entrance.
You get a better feel for it from this photo of people heading towards the Woodland Walk.
We didn’t go to the Woodland Walk, though, as I wanted to go to the Acer Glade again. As we walked along the path that runs down behind the house of took this photo of it in the fog.
But the fog meant that the cobwebs were great today.
And this plant was covered.
The fog still lingered as we reached the Acer Glade.
But the sun was starting to break through and the leaves were stunning.
I love the cobweb on this one.
And I rather like this photo of a single leaf.
This was Lady’s Walk. As you can see the fog was clearing.
When we got around to the Cedar Avenue I saw a tree stump I hadn’t really noticed before.
It tells you when the tree was planted (1835)…
… when it was felled (2007) …
… and points in between.
This was the Cedar Avenue in the sunshine.
And the house.
A view across the park to the front of the house.
Roses in the gardens.
There were also Halloween preparations in full swing.
Back at the entrance Max had to investigate the pumpkin display.
And finally, a photo of Max taken fairly early on in our walk.
There are more photos from today over on my Flickr stream if you want to take a look.
A year ago today
We went to Broadstone Rec for our walk and then I gave Max a trim.
