Creations of Beauty are Forever

Happy Easter Everyone

At the start of the month my daughter and I visited Wollaton Hall in Nottingham.  It was a warm sunny day, and although the clouds kept coming and going, they were a welcome shade from the heat of the Sun. 

With the vast land and sense of history, you cannot help but to wonder about the glorious past of this majestic building, and how many carriages have crossed this path, with their glamorous passengers clad in their finest.  The building itself is a testament to the craftsmanship that went into building it. 
Oh, I adore the place; it’s a dream.

I wouldn't have minded living in this place, would you?

Every Paradise has it's Troubles

However, the peace on the water was disturbed when one of the swans decided to chase a goose around what seemed the entirety of the lake.

I hope that these photographs can at least partially convey my passion for this blissful place.


  1. Those white hyacinths do look so peaceful and serene. I can almost smell them. What a lovely buildings and grounds to explore. Thanks for the visit...good luck with your herb garden.
    Happy Easter.

  2. Oh my goodness, this building is stunning.
    I love to look at the older buildings I am in awe of the craftmanship in them. Beautiful.
