We begun our half term holiday at Hardwick Hall, Nottinghamshire. It has been a long, long time since our last visit but we enjoyed it just as much. Unfortunately, it was a miserable day, but we still managed to have plenty of fun spotting ladybirds and playing in the autumn leaves.
After a good romp in the leafy orchard, we had a little sit down in the herb garden whilst Mr Bee played with his newfound stick. Maybe he was a dog in an previous life, picking out sticks far bigger than him and refusing to give them up.
After a thorough walk around the gardens, I snapped the last of the flowers, the beautiful dahlias. We headed to the lovely cafe for a cream tea and then we found the woodland play trail. Mr Bee adored the woodland play areas, as usual, however this time he explored the whole thing all by his self, no holding hands! Little adventurer :)
and we found more ladybirds!
