A evening walk around Blessingboure House estate

On my first evening at Blessingbourne House I took a different path passing through the farmyard and into the wonderful countryside, finding birds, wildflowers, beautiful shaped trees, streams with reflections and just enjoying the brilliant evening sunlight and the peace and quietness during this walk.






Bullfinch



Chaffinch


These ladies were part of a group who were walking round one of the many signposted walking tracks and afterwards had refreshments up in the Courtyard area.








Aberdeen Angus cattle




Before I retired, I went to check up on the horses and goats before having a last look at the lake at the front of the house again.  
Above is Coleen’s horse called Toy Boy.


This is Crunchie and Linton









When I went into my apartment and looked out the back window, who should I spy but one of the Peacocks looking in at me.  It was a lovely way to end the day and these last 3 shots are through the lounge window.




I hope you have enjoyed walking with me round a different part of the estate.  Tomorrow, with the Good Fences meme, you will see even more of this wonderful place.

Thank you for visiting and also many thanks to all of those who leave comments.

  21. Lovely photos. Margaret, what is the lacy white flower in the photo after the bullfinch photo? We saw that flower through out our walks in the Cotswolds and though it looks like what we call Queen Anne's lace the foliage is wrong. Please respond on my blog. thanks.
