A winter walk.

I have been giving you ideas to take the stress out of the Christmas preparations.

Today I went to Chatsworth in Derbyshire. 

This is where “ Capability” Brown designed the Landscape Garden. 

Beautiful stretches of landscape are composed of larger areas of fields with well-placed trees.

A lake stretches from the house into the distance.

It is very relaxing on a mild day in December.

The Victorian greenhouses were used to produce exotic fruit for the dinning table.

There is a lot more to admire in the form of the water cascade and the various sculptures in and outside the house.

Of course we cannot garden on this scale.

Instead we can take a day off and visit houses such as these.

They are part of our heritage too.
