A great place to wipe away the cares and troubles of the day surrounded by a variety of trees, lovely shrubs, and hedgerows any time of the year.
It has been wonderful getting out again and into the fresh air and countryside after being up inside for the last 20 months.

Other times I just like to show the photos.
