Winter at shillingstone House

Winter is the time for repairs and changes to the gardens and grounds.  We are waiting for the drive to be re-surfaced - the potholes have become too many!  We have planted new trees in the playground to hide the tractor as you walk to the kitchen garden and we are hoping to re-instate the Ha-Ha to focus the view from the lawns. 

The frosts have brought magic to the gardens as you can see in the photographs below (taken by my brother in law Malcolm Coombs with a fish-eye lens).
