The day we went to Shugborough! The lovely Jane from Plain Jane had organised a blog meet at Shugborough and it being in the same county as me and not very far away I couldn't not go. I hadn't met any of the lovely people who came along before but I needn't have worried we all got along fine and chatted and laughed and enjoyed ourselves as, after a picnic lunch in the walled garden, we wandered around the house and grounds.
My lovely companions for the afternoon Mel, Gilly, Jane and Jacquie. Thank you for your friendly welcome and a special thank you to Gilly for her super, tasty homemade biscuits.
The gardens were looking lovely but as usual when I am chattering I forgot to take lots of photos. So I've just included a few of the views and scenes that caught my eye.
