at Lodge Park and Sherborne Park Estate :)
Today I'd planned a trip to Slimbridge wild bird reserve, but given the state of my back from yesterday I knew I'd need to have a more gentle day and do some walking, and not drive so much, so I found a National Trust property (with wildflower meadow and all manor of things if I'd had the time) to visit fairly near my overnight accommodation.
Lodge Park was apparently a 'gambling' lodge built especially for that originally in the 1600's - more on the NT page here
and the rest of my photos herer
I could have blipped plenty, but I don't often manage to capture butterflies, so here's one for a change :)
Home, unpacked, shopped and wash load on already :)
Tomorrow I have a much calmer day - a spa day and a friend's birthday - with a few others, so I have a present to wrap etc tonight...
I am looking forward to a late breakfast, a swim and a much needed back, shoulders and neck massage, followed by 'afternoon' tea :)
Yesterday's backblip - do take a look, thank you :)
Happy Friday folks :)
