We had a lovely time at Hyde Hall, despite a very cold and stiff wind blowing.
When J arrived here, it was gloriously sunny, as we set off, it started raining, iot rained all the way there, as we got out of the car we saw a beautiful rainbow and then the clouds rolled away and it was glorious again.
We walked up to the top and started with a coffee before we had a good meander around. There was so much colour. The bulbs were lovely, of course, and they seem to have a speciality in different kinds of daffodils/narcissi which were an absolute picture all the way round, but shrubs were in bloom and so much was coming up freshly green, yellow or red.
Here's some photos which say it better than I can.
Today there's several things on. Chris is coming round for coffee at ten, I have tuition later in the afternoon and then it is last-born's fortieth birthday today so we're off the the Blue Strawberry for a celebration meal and Alex is back from uni for it. Lovely!
Have a good day. xx
Lovely photos and Happy Birthday to Beth!ReplyDelete
Not Beth, she's the first-born. It's Dave. Thanks.Delete
What lovely photos Joy, I like the leaf sculpture. You've a nice day planned, enjoy your family meal out. xxReplyDelete
I loved that too. It, and the leaf sign, were in the Winter Garden and they gave me a few pottery ideas.Delete
Really looking forward to this evening, thank you. :-)
Happy Birthday to Beth. My eldest is 40 this year - goodness, where do the years go?ReplyDelete

Scary, isn't it! It seems no time at all since they were little!Delete
Thank you - I think it will be good.
Happy Birthday to Dave. I hope you have a lovely celebration meal with your family.ReplyDelete
Hyde Hall looks wonderful in your photos.
It's one of my favourite place. Maybe this year I will achieve my wish to visit once a month and see all the changes. It's an easy drive, especially once you're through town. And thanks.Delete
Your photographs are just glorious. Whatever else is going on in the world spring is still upon us. XReplyDelete
