Stourhead spring

Easter school holiday, grandchildren for the day and blue skies - perfect day for returning to our old haunts.
You had seen lots of pictures on my blog from Stourhead, when we lived just down the road from there.
It is little further now, but I will never tire of coming here, although this is not the view you have seen before.  All buildings need attention sometimes.

Oh, much better view.

The Temple of Apollo already restored, 

                                                         unfortunately not open today.

                                                       But the view from up here is wonderful.

The spring has definitively arrived here.

The children had a great time, running around, playing hide ans seek, climbing trees .......
and other things....

and exploring the "secret" grotto.

Spring is everywhere,
a resident swan already on her nest on the island.

It was a lovely walk, but by the end the grandparents wished they could join the two ducks :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!
