The weather forecast promised sunshine so we decided that we would take a break from some of the household routine of the last week and the ongoing building project in the entrance hall.
On Friday morning we went over to Ladybower Reservoir.
I love the combination of water and countryside
and the walks along the many reservoirs in our area
are a good way of enjoying both.
The banks and woods along the Ladybower
are still covered in a haze of blue.
On Saturday morning I took a walk in the walled garden next to our local library.
There's so much to see and enjoy in every corner of it, including the kitchen garden.
I also went into the woodland area just beyond the walled garden, which is always a quiet spot
for wild life.
On Sunday DH and I drove down to the Matlock Bath area
in Derbyshire to visit Lea Gardens and Nursery. They looked wonderful.
The rhododendrons and azaleas are a speciality
of the owners of the garden and woodland set over several acres
in the heart of the countryside.
