Grey’s Court

Lovely autumn day here is Oxfordshire, so we made the most of our National Trust membership and went to Grey’s Court, near Henley. Unfortunately for me, no photography inside the house, but the gardens are lovely so that made up for it. The weather was good enough for a picnic, and we visited the tea room before coming home. I gave most of my scone to young missy, but I did have a tasty “Charles Ross” apple while looking round the garden. The orchards there produce a number of varieties and for a modest donation in the honesty box you can select from about a dozen types. Apples aside, the gardens are a delight, set out as a series of “rooms” which you can wander between by a number of paths and going through doors and gates. This gives the delight of wondering what you will find as you gently open a door and pass through. I could happily have spent more time at Grey’s, but Sunday afternoon also means getting things ready for school and work, ironing clothes, sorting washing etc. But a good dose of fresh air and sunshine is good for the soul so none of those chores seemed quite so bad today.

If you have any comments, then please do get in touch. If you’d like to see more of where I’ve been with my camera then come back and visit this blog again soon.

I've been a keen photographer for many years now, and have taken photos at many social events, including parties, weddings, school events and dance performances. I work hard to get good shots and assemble a collection of photos that help make a special set of memories.
