Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Sheffield Park National Trust # 18

Sheffield Park in East Sussex is a National Trust property. The gardens were laid out in the 18thCent by Capability Brown and have an attractive informal feel to them. The gardens are centred around four large lakes which reflect the mature shrubs and trees surrounding them.

  8. Very tranquil. The first few photos are really good. I think I can see a weeping willow at the lakeside, which have been declared a pest here, but they do look so good with their leaves trailing in the water.

  10. What a strange name, Capability. It would put a lot of pressure on a little one to live up to it! That big gnarly tree is just amazing, and I do love all that green and the beautiful reflections.
