Summer at Harewood

Not often we go to Harewood in the nice warm summer, but today we had a lovely relaxing day there. Good to see the walled kitchen garden by the other side of the lake developing extremely well.

It was brisk cold winter’s day, and was lovely!...

The museum was well adorned with Christmas Decorations and the bottom platform doubled as the place where all the mail gets sorted for North Yorkshire (North Yorkshire Pole!) and gets sent to Santa. Lots of parcels and toys were around and the children first...
