Five on Friday

It's Friday so I'm joining in with  Amy at Love Made my Home for this week's Five on Friday.  Click on the link at the bottom of this post to find others who are joining in too.

This week has gone by so quickly and I feel as if I'm running late with my Five on Friday post but better late than never.  We had a walk around the grounds and arboretum at Shugborough this morning so below are five of the photos that I took along the way.



 1.  Swan on the river which runs through the estate between the Mansion House and the Arboretum.

 2. Gloucester Old Spot piglet in the walled garden

3.  Robin in the formal gardens
 
4.  English Longhorn cattle in the meadow near the river.
 

 5.  Tortoiseshell Butterfly in the flower gardens.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  1. Such beautiful photos, the contrast between the tortoiseshell butterfly and the aster is extraordinary and the swan reflection. You're a very accomplished photographer.

  4. These are lovely photos, I really must visit Shugborough, it's a place I've always wanted to see and have never quite got to.

    1. There is quite a lot to see but some of it isn't NT so you have to pay entry fees - you can get your car parking back on one ticket though. The best bits are the kitchens and farm house:)
