Trip to Felbrigg

The grandchildren came to stay for a few days and we went to visit Felbrigg, a National Trust property nearby. It's a Jacobean house with a Georgian interior and a beautiful walled garden with chickens running free.
The outside:

 And two pictures of the hand painted birds on the wallpaper in the Chinese bedroom.
I also like the library, and the kitchen with the wonderful array of polished copper saucepans.

The children went for a romp in the woods, there are lots of walks to choose from, and I sat by the pool in the walled garden and watched a female blackbird bathe and goldfinches come down to drink. The borders were a riot of colour, and parts of the garden are let to local people for allottments. the smell of ripe blackcurrants was heavenly!

 I managed to finish stitching down the binding on my fourth Journal quilt so the next four are now ready to load up onto the Yahoo site at the beginning of August.
