Winter Park Fun

The weather is being rather weird at the moment, I have seen buds on trees and it has been so warm at times, certainly compared to the weather we were having last year.

Not that I am complaining, we live on a rather large hill and snow makes it a nightmare.

So this weekend we braved the what was the coldest day and went out to the local duck park to get some fresh air.

It was a good time to go out, as there is still so much to see...apparently this stick was too good to walk past.

 Running around the rose garden....

Playing hide and seek...

In to the sensory garden, lots to see on the walls...

Chasing each other through the tunnel...

We kinda thought this tree looked like a giant foot, can you see it?

Looking at the little hedgehogs aka sweet chestnut...

A year ago a friend of the family died of cancer, her family had this tree planted in the park so it was nice to find it and pay our respects.

Looking over the park at the old Home Brewery building, so sad this isn't a brewery anymore as I have fond memories of the smell of hops in the summer :)

Still running...

Duck spotting...

Can you see the man in the tree, of course you can.

This week I am linking up to Country Kids over at the Coombe Mill Blog

    1. Thank you for stopping by Laura, the great thing about this park is it is the one I used to go to as a child, so nice to be able to take them back and it's charms still being as wonderful :)

  2. How wonderful to be able to share a place from your own childhood with your children and make new memories with them. I love the idea of the sensory garden and the willow tunnel as well as the man in the tree (who looks like a wise wizard). Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

    1. Indeed, it is lovely to be able to share it with them. There is also a bird house but it wasn't open. Its great to just be able to go there for half an hour :)

  3. Such a lovely park and great photos! You are so lucky to have such a great park close-by. Popping in from #CountryKids

    1. It is a wonderful park, we are quite lucky to have a few close by but the ducks are a definite plus for the children :) Thank you for stopping by.
