Being at one with the stones

On the way home from granny and grandad’s on Wednesday we stopped at the ancient henge at Avebury. It’s a glorious monument set in beautiful wiltshire countryside. We only had a brief stop, but will deffo be back for longer next time.

Here I am being at one with the stones.

Sleepy Hollow

Given the sunny weather we went for a turn around the park land at Montacute House. It’s a gorgeous estate and I rode my trike amongst the trees. The wind was biting but we wrapped up warm. Lots of other people had the same idea. We saw loads of dog walkers and pushchairs. In the summer it must get really busy. The best bit though were the tyre swings which have been cut out to look like horses. I’m still a bit too young, but I reckon I’ll be big enough in a few months time. Given the headless horseman anyone would think we were in Sleepy Hollow!

Oh deer, oh deer

This morning we opened the curtains to a carpet of white. It was a beautiful winter scene made even more glorious by the addition of a doe sitting on our lawn. She stayed there for a few hours. While we watched a number of rabbits frolicked around her and a few robins hopped from branch to branch above her head. It was our own real life Disney film.

I took a photo but it hasn’t really come out – if you squint you can see a blob above and left from the centre – that’s the deer!
