    What a great place to visit and you look beautiful in green, Claire! The architecture is stunning but so are the surrounding sculptures and garden. Monday’s are not my favorite but I don’t hate them either. They are actually my most productive day! Hehe I love that sculpture holding a golden delicious apple. So fun! My favorite flowers are alstroemerias and shoes would be slip ons!

    Oh my, I love Rufford Park. When I was small, there was nothing much there and it was a dog walk and bike ride around the water. In my teenage years our youth group would often spend evenings playing games on the meadow. Once I could drive my fiancé and I would spend Saturday afternoons here. Then as an art student, the galleries and creative workshops were fab. It became a place to take our children when we visited family, and even now I recommend it to all my friends who visit the area. It must be 5 years since I was last there. Next time we’re visiting family I think it will be a must.
