Everything is extraordinarily lush here at the moment thanks to the rain 🌧 we’ve been receiving. After a few days of glorious sunshine ☀️ today has been biblical. It’s rained heavily ALL day. The Oak trees in Fletcher Fields on the way to Cinderdale are so beautiful, their branches twist and cover the path and create shade and shelter for everyone who passes underneath them. And the sheep 🐑 of course. 🌳The sound of the strong wind and rain in the branches making the Oak leaves dance was too good to miss. 🔊 Sound ON!
We were taking pictures of the house in the beautiful weather we’ve been having here recently...and then these two come along🐶 thinking it’s their own staged photo shoot 📸 😂#Smile&WaveBoys #Grasmoor
Time here is measured by a gentle Summer breeze and the ticking of the grandfather Clock in the Hall 🕰🌸👒 #TempusFugit

Early morning in Lanthwaite Woods 🌳🌞🍃
☁️ A bit of a dreich day here, grey and mizzly, but we are getting on with outside jobs 🌺~ gardening is on the list this afternoon, aided by cups of tea ☕️ and Date Slice and flapjacks 🌾(if we work hard enough!)😋 . In the words of the great Tennis Player 🎾Arthur Ashe “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
