We had a lovely day out in Shropshire yesterday and it is hard to believe in the rain of today what a glorious day it was. The weather was perfect. We visited two wonderful places quite close to each other namely Attingham Park and Wroxeter Roman City. I'll do a post about each of them later but here are just a few photos from Attingham Park which, for me, capture the spirit of the day.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
