Today we thought we would take Emrys and James out to Audley End House and Gardens...well us boys didn't go in the house as we were having too much fun in the gardens, so while the big people went in the house we looked round the gardens which were HUGE.
Quite impressive house isn't it? This is the 'back' view.
This is the 'front' view. I think we could live here quite happily? Don't you?
We have a discussion about where to explore first.
This tree seemed the best place!
It is rather big, do you think it will be possible to climb?
Although James made an attempt...
It really did prove too difficult.
We try a group photo...Emrys was trying to play tricks behind our heads, much to James' annoyance.
This is a better one, although I'm not looking in the right direction...
How about this shot? I think James might still have the hump with Emrys.
Probably the best we will get at our 'selfies' which seem all the rage at the moment.
Just outside the walled vegetable garden are some wonderful tulips...if you like that sort of thing. We are okay about flowers and anyway...
Emrys wanted to present some virtual flowers to his Mum who has been back in hospital again.
He hopes they cheer her up, now she is back home.
James looks at them and wishes he had had the idea first.
It's okay James, Mum will know that both of us send our love. Emrys reassures James.
Look at me!
What you doing that for? We ask
'Cause the flowers look better upside down! We are told.
Hmmm...not convinced, but they do look pretty special.
James finds some rocks to climb.
As do I.
Whereas Emrys discovers some ferns.
Pretty cool isn't it?
We go into the walled kitchen garden and discover...
This fun wagon to have our photo taken on.
We have fun wandering round, although not a lot is growing yet, it is all very early season.
Just outside of the walled garden is a playground..
Ye ha Cowboy, Emrys takes the reins.
He goes so fast, we almost fall backwards!
More rocks to climb.
Emrys proves to be a real dare devil.
Taking some time out in front of the fountain.
Enjoying a discussion...wouldn't you like to know?
The other side of the fountain looking towards the house. Yes we are still chatting.
In deep discussion mode.
It was a pretty good day in all. Plenty to see and do and lots of grounds to run around and play in.
