Dartington Hall One Year to the Day

Yesterday, we were strolling around the gardens at Dartington Hall, one of our local leaf peeping places, when Andy said, 'When were we here last autumn?'


'I dunno', I mumbled from behind my camera.  I was busy taking photos of the Virginia Creeper that covers the gatehouse wall. 



'It must have been about this time, give or take a day',  he said. 



'Wasn't it closer to November?' I muttered as I focused in on the tiny thatched cottage we call The Three Bears' House. 



'You'll have to look at the blog when you get home and find out',  said Andy as we stood and looked at the view tumbling down the hill and out into the Dart Valley.  



'OK, can you move your feel out of the shot, please', I instructed as the toes of Andy's shoes were just visible on the stone path.  



So when we got home I checked .... It was ONE YEAR to the day EXACTLY!

    1. Andy is fully employed and I am fortunate to just be a housewife. When I lived in the States I was an accountant. We try to visit interesting places near our home in Devon. I prefer day trips to long holidays.

    2. I was always just a housewife until I started working part time a few years ago, , and due to being ill I am one again, I think running the home, cooking and cleaning is a full time job anyway, but I really love it.

  3. What a coincidence to have been there exactly on the same day. Sure you enjoyed visiting this lovely place last year very much as you were here again. The colours of autumn on the pictures are stunning. Dartington must be a great place to visit I have to remember for one of our next England trips.

    1. The blog has become my recipe file, diary, and memory bank. I don't know what I'd do without it! I'd LOVE a little cottage like that one in my garden. I'd never come out of it. : D
