Wimpole Hall

 The way to spend a lovely Sunday, - we met up with some good friends - we all met on holiday and we have been meeting up regularly to keep in touch.  It was a lovely day - a bit grey and overcast but - we had so much catching up to do we didn't really notice that!!

Wimpole Hall is fabulous - the house is lovely and everytime you visit these stately homes you learn something different. 

The National Trust did us proud in the restaurant the roast was gorgeous and the afternoon cream tea yummy - all along with lots of chatting - who could want more!!

I had to take these photos of the dahlias in the wall garden - okay I know they are not all dahlias - but the colours were so beautiful for the time of year - lovely to see them on a grey day.

Whilst we were in the walled garden there was an enormous flight of canadian geese flying over - the noise was deafening - I did try to take a photo but on the phone it was not successful but it was a magnificant sight.  We didn't venture too far into the grounds as it was all so wet underfoot and you would have needed wellies or walking boots and none of us has come equipped - so of course coffee, food and more food were all the order of the day.  Looking forward to our next planned meeting at Anglesey Abbey in February to see the snowdrops.
