After a jam packed week, Mr Bee and I needed some peace and quiet time for just Mummy and her little boy. It feels like I have barely seen him all week, with having so many visitors in and out, I have been the last of his priorities. With a picnic packed up and the car filled up, we hopped onto the motorway to Packwood House in Warwickshire.
We munched our lovely picnic but not without interruptions. First it was the gardener with a very loud strimmer (see above!) and then all of the wasps in the vicinity decided they wanted a piece of our picnic. So we gave up and went for a walk instead.
The kitchen garden was even more beautiful that I remember from our last visit. But by far the best feature was the little pond in the centre with watering cans asking 'Please Help Yourself to Water Our Garden', of course we obliged. Such a simple way to keep kiddies (and big kiddies...) entertained!
And off he went to the main garden...
We played hide and seek in the yew trees, ran endlessly on the lawn with shoes off and admired the view from the secret tree seat.
And not forgetting the good hour we spent fascinated by a huge marble run!
