Thank you again to @coyotewillow @0rl0vsky for beauty to brighten a grey afternoon.

Haven't been to @fordeabbey for 20 years; always whizzing by on the way to somewhere else. Lady at the ticket desk said I wouldn't be disappointed. Oh #wiselady

How lucky to catch #yewsfarm #martock on such an evening. Thank you to @dowdinglouise and Fergus Dowding. Models of patience when faced with canine escapees and makers of a wonderful garden. #somerset #eveninglight #friendsgarden #happyevening (well, maybe not the dog chase)

#nofilter #honest. After a day of rain and gloom, suddenly the sitting room lit up. #fingerscrossed

It is a horrible day in Somerset so have put on a filter to make this view over the heart-shaped lake at Compton Castle more like a French landscape painting to cheer up the scene. If there hadn't been a family spending ages in the temple taking every possible combination of relatives posing together, would have had time to take a picture of the castle in its gothic glory from the other side by the temple. The Picturesque grounds were planted c 1825: I wonder what the owner saw as he looked out from his new turrets. It was open today for the #balsamcentre drop in #wincanton. Despite being a rainy Monday afternoon the place was packed. Flowers by @suki1395 on the tea tables added a snazzy jazzy factor.

#funky #sky last night. Back to grey today
