Just a few more photo`s of our time away ..
Kirby Hall - visited on our way home ..
Part of it is in ruins , while English Heritage
are restoring rooms and conserving what they can
for visitors to see . It is an Elizabethan mansion -
with restored gardens from the 1600`s .
A pea hen - admiring herself ???
One of many names etched on the stones ....
Part of the ruined inner court ....
A restored ceiling ....
Myself - sat in a big bay window ..
Now what am i thinking ?
The view out ......
The wallpaper and fireplace in the room .
There were also 2 peacocks roaming freely
about the grounds , along with the female .
People did not bother them , and they seemed
just to get on with their daily routine , and coming up
very close to you - to see if you had any food .
The colours were a treat to see so close up -
I may have got done for bird cruelty - as i
really wanted to pluck one of his feathers !! ;o)
The bird was unharmed by the way !!
Seeing these gracious birds - was the highlight
of my visit here ....
And we sat on a bench viewing the garden ,
and the birds came - just to be nosey !
I managed to get a short video of them !
Have a wonderful weekend everyone !!
