There is no filter, no edit nor crop on this picture. It is exactly as I took it last evening. And after 10 days of relaxing on the beautiful island of Crete I feel so much less inclined to artifice. I have slept well and can now read without my glasses. I have eaten too well and now struggle with my waistband. I have also spent the best part of each day swimming. I adore the weightlessness of a pool and the sheer joy of cutting through its depths.
I will board my return flight refreshed, renewed and improved- a Sally 2.0 if you like. .

And still the Harlaxton spam keeps coming - #sorrynotsorry 😁
My own home is only a few years younger than this beauty and I have often dreamed of a conservatory of my own. This one is actually bigger than my home and consists of 5 separate rooms that can be sealed off from each other in order to control different growing environments. I really would be quite happy with any one of them. I don’t ask for much. .

“It was a house without kindness, never meant to be lived in, not a fit place for people or for love or for hope. Exorcism cannot alter the countenance of a house ; Hill House would stay as it was until it was destroyed.” ― Shirley Jackson, ‘The Haunting of Hill House’

In 1822, Gregory Gregory (yup, his real name) inherited Harlaxton Manor. He had the original Elizabethan manor house demolished and set about building a new home to house his collections of art.
This is the view from what would have been his bedroom had he not died of ‘gout exhaustion’ in 1854. .

20 years ago I watched a film - ‘The Haunting’. It wasn’t a particularly good film but it had Liam Neeson in it and I thought it looked suitably spooky. Little did I know how deeply I would fall in love. Not with Mr Neeson but with the star of the film - Hill House (@hillhousevintage take note). This glorious gothic pile (although dressed for Hollywood) took my breath away. I’ve been clamouring to visit for all that time and yesterday I had my chance.
Harlaxton Manor is owned by the US University of Evansville and only opens for 1 day a year. I spent the whole day with my eyes on stalks, my heart in my mouth and my tongue on the floor (nice eh?). #oldhouselove #tv_retro #tv_living #transfer_visions #rsa_ladies #rsa_preciousjunk_ #royalsnappingartists #fiftyshades_of_history #manor_n_castle #loves_united_castle #castles_oftheworld #ukpotd #loves_united_england #britains_talent #capturingbritain_castles #harlaxton_college #architecturalengland #tv_buildings #buildingstyles_gf #gothicglory

Oh look, green grass! Now there’s a novelty. Everything is dusky gold now. The east of England is in crisis with temperatures forecast to reach the mid 30s this week. At least I can find consolation from pictures of lush gardens and know that this heatwave will pass. Lush greenery will return - I hope 🤞🏻 #fiftyshades_of_nature #garden_styles #all_gardens #nature_perfection #tribenorfolk #igersnorfolk #nature_brilliance #naturehippys #nature_of_our_world #nature_sultans #fingerprintofgod #east_anglia #eastrustonoldvicaragegarden #symmetryaddicted #englishcountrygardens #stately #gloriousgardens #heatwave2018

Phew 😅- ‘I’m melting Dorothy!’
34C and my Celtic skin has begun to curdle and blister.
However, we ventured out to the @woltertonpark Summer Fete and inhaled the splendour of the place. What a stunning building it is. Those Walpole bros, Horatio and Robert, certainly knew how to throw a country pile together!
