break in the clouds

and a chance for a quick walk around Stourhead Lake. Every time I come here I think how lucky we are to live so close to one of National Trust's treasures.
The wet and cold weather is holding everything back, so many trees are still without its leaves.

But there is lots of fresh greens around, with some interesting shapes,


and lots of spring colours.


On the island in the lake a swan sitting on the nest.

I wish you a very good week!


  1. Radka, I love the header photo. So pretty and springlike.

    Thanks for the walk around the gardens. What fabulous flowers and trees. Spring is on its way for you and we are well into Autumn.

  2. Lucky ? say it again ! I would say : "you are blessed to live there".
    And I'm happy to see, with your help , all those wonderful places...I almost can "feel" them : the quiet, the smell,the slow movement. Thank you.

  3. WOW, Loved seeing all the beautiful tree and bushes in bloom. But the lake looks as smooth as glass and most mystic and lovely. Thanks for sharing. Hugs Judy

  4. Absolutely glorious photographs again Radka. I always appreciate the sights you share with us. This place is wonderful, such gorgeous blooms, and green vegetation. We just never see 'green' quite like that. I hope you have a lovely week too, and there is time in there somewhere for stitching. Take care.
