One fine day...

The weather here in England has been far from what you'd expect from May. We have had so much rain the past two months, that the drought which was declared back in March has been cancelled!

However, today was a fine day and a chance to go out and explore what we have literally in our back yard... The Leasowes.

Our view ...
I forget sometimes how lucky we are, especially as we are only a few miles away from the City.

The Leasowes was owned and designed by William Shenstone, an English poet, back in the 18th Century. 
It houses many pools, cascades, a golf course and club house (Shenstone's former home) and this month, these 3 beautiful Exmoor Ponies ...
These are just a small amount of the photos I took - I got a little 'camera happy'!

We took a walk around the canal basin which neighbours the land ...
And we fed the life down at the pools
At the entrance to The Leasowes is a picnic and children's play area.

How great to see this little girl feeding a very friendly robin ...
As I type, I can see the park at dusk and I'm hopeful that England will see some more Summer soon!
