We happened to have a morning this week when I had my little man to myself. The cleaning and jobs were as organised as they could be. (Just don't open any doors or look in our bedrooms or garage.) So we were free to pop out for a wander round the secret gardens at Blenheim Palace.
We've had gorgeous weather this week. You can see the jacket soon comes off, and even his jumper!
We couldn't go in the Italian Gardens, this are apparently private, but I liked this statue we could just see over the hedges. I don't condone violence, but I like the action and the story behind it. What is he so angry about and why are they so un-inhibited to fight while undressed.
This statue caught our eye as well.
We had the place to ourselves and it was delightful.
Of course I grabbed the chance to admire the plants while my guy navigated the way and explored.
I was the recepient of the gift of blossom.
It was nice to let him explore and be the one to lead the way for once.
We might pop back to see these as I'm sure they will have opened up by now.
Possibly the best part of our visit was having an adventure in the big tree.
A place that he named: Awesome.
And counting the stairs on the big staircase which is featured in the Jack Black movie Gulliver's Travels.
And blowing things up with the cannons of course!
