T stands for..taking you back to Sizergh

As promised I have some photos of the gardens at Sizergh Castle, which is a short drive from our caravan.
This was when we visited in March.
 What a change now!

This is the same area from the other direction - as you can see I am still with the photo bomber!
It's great to see the flowers in bloom!
The Stumpery is now fully open and we enjoyed seeing the plants growing around the old tree stumps! We were surprised to see that the Narcissi are still quite fresh in this area

 The swan stood up for a stretch and a preen before settling down again.

 A handkerchief tree - see how the flowers hang down!

This is where I have an epic fail on the drink front - we were quite hungry after our walk and all you can see  here is the very edge of my glass of water that I had with our meal - believe me it was a very nice spicy sweet potato quiche and salad!
Hubby giving me just one of his - 'here she goes again look'!(This is the best!)
Of course I'm joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for T Stands for Tuesday and I hope I am forgiven E!
If you want to know why I am in a pink mood (as Elizabeth spotted) I have more to show you tomorrow! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

Wow. What a gorgeous place. It was pretty in March but now it is just amazing. Glad you shared and the quiche sounds good. I haven't had quiche in a while, I should make one. Enjoy your T day. Hugs-Erika

Isn't mother nature amazing. I am in awe of the various changes that have occurred in just two months. Wonderful photos, including the one of the photo bomber. The colors and shapes are simply beautiful.I am in awe of this place and hope you share it through the coming months, too.

Love the photo of T and his look while you shared your quiche. I'm with Erika. I haven't made quiche in years, but it really sounds good (and fattening, too).

Thanks for taking us to Sizergh again and for sharing your quiche and water with us for T this Tuesday. Can't wait to see what this pink kick you are on amounts to.

Lovely gardens, the handkerchief​ tree is amazing and the shapes and colours of the acers are beautiful! The photo of your Mr. Made me smile and from the looks of it it's probably a good job you didn't make him wait to eat by taking a photo beforehand! 😀 Happy T Day! J 😊

What a difference in a few months! It certainly is a beautiful garden. I love what they have done with the stumpery. (Even the name tickles me).
Your husband's look says: 'long-suffering' .
Mmmm quiche. I love quiche and am quite good at making them. I cannot do them in the summer as it is too hot to make pastry and shop bought pastry is pants (and not big enough). That is a shame as a quiche is nice for picnics.
What is there to forgive? You have your drink in the picture. End of story.
Happy T-Day,

You got some great photos at Sizergh Castle, Chris. I love the lambs and swans.

I see the drink glass, so that counts for our T-party ;-) Your hubby's expression - my hubby won't even allow photos of his face - lol.

Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

What a beautiful spot to wander around. Looks very peaceful. I had to awww when I saw the photo of the lambs. The Eldest had a stuffed lambie (still has it) as her favorite lovey when she was little. Thank your Hubby for being so patient while you take photos for us. Tell him you're providing a service: enabling the nosy (-; Happy T Day
