Mosaic Monday - A Surprise for Amy!

Hello

Thank you for visiting the blog. I have been a little disorganised with my Mosaic Monday posts since Christmas but have got my act together to join in with Judith this week.

The weather here has either been cold and bright or grey, wet and mild so I thought we could look back on a warmer, sunnier day at a visit to a National Trust property. Not just any NT property but the one that Amy from Love Made MY Home knows well! Basildon Park.

Here's a link to the website where you'll see how things went when Downtown Abbey came to film there in 2014.







It's a beautiful place. I must go back when the weather improves. I hope you are all safe and sound where you are.

  4. This is somewhere I really must visit. Is it near Pangbourne? I am sure we camped in the grounds of Basildon Park years ago when I was a Guide leader. xx

    1. Yes it's in between Pangbourne and Goring, half hour walk from Pangbourne station, sadly next to the road. x

  5. Lovely to see your pictures from BP! I love the angle of your shot of the shells, not one that I have seen before, but they look really great don't they! xx

  6. It will be sad when season 6 of DA is finished, much like losing touch with some good friends.
    We have a fair bit of snow but the sun is shining which is a real treat for us.

  7. What a lovely place, and I also like the seashells photo, as well as the carved squirrel. It's good to have a reminder of warmer days - roll on spring!
