Last weekend we decided to go for an over due visit to Normanby Hall. It has been a couple of months since our last visit so we were looking forward to seeing the signs of spring.
The walled garden, where the fruit and vegetables are grown, was bare except for some remaining artichokes. It will be good to see how it changes over the year and fills up again. We took a walk into the greenhouse and saw some beautiful flowers. One of my favourite flowers, the Bird of Paradise, was in full bloom.
We walked down one of the greenhouse corridors and were greeted by a lovely sweet smell and pretty pink flowers. After further investigation we were amazed to see that they were nectarine trees. I am looking forward to seeing how they progress.
While we were walking around this time we realised that it is the first time that the twins have walked around on their own without reins. Yes we did still have to dash after them when they decided to go in the opposite way but it was fun and they loved the extra freedom!
Here is Normanby Hall at the beginning of spring...
As always I am sharing with the lovely Annie from Mammasaurus and the lovely Em and Aby from Snowing Indoors and You Baby Me Mummy.
