Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness..at Stourhead

It was a beautiful, slightly misty day today. Mark has the week off work and we decided to go to Stourhead National Trust house and gardens (had intended to go to Dunster Castle, but decided it was too long a drive). It is a while since we had been to Stourhead and it is so beautiful, we will not leave it so long again.

I love the way the National Trust so often has the opportunity for dressing up these days!
