We had a lovely stroll at our local National Trust property, Knightshaye's Court, on Sunday morning, and I took a few photos. Gardens only, for once we didn't go anywhere near the big house.
We were too early for the walled, kitchen garden unfortunately, so we toodled off elsewhere and never did go back - we plan to within the next week or two.
A small meadow of what I think are ox-eye daisies.
A closer look.
Fallen branches in the woods.
The ferns in the woods were stunning.
Originally this was the stable block but now houses the National Trust's shop and cafeteria etc.
One of the many vistas to be seen from the gardens.
The pond - it was alive with swallows going after all the insects. If you click on the pic you can just see one of them between two clumps of yellow flowers.
Another form of wildlife... our grandson enjoying his new hobby of fence-climbing.
Fungi growing on a tree. Not sure what this type is called but it was layered like shelves. I asked Hubby to lift me up to take a better photo but he didn't seem all that keen...
Another vista which sort of shows where we live... we're to the left of that communications mast on the edge of the woods - somewhere in that block of white houses, probably behind that big tree.
And here endeth your trip to darkest Devon for today.
