Speaking of the top left corner of my blog - look a little further down, and you'll find a clickable picture that takes you straight to my Mum's Etsy Shop, where she sells her hand-knitted socks, mittens, woolly hats and other things. Now that the colder season is quickly approaching (and can already be felt here in the mornings and evenings), maybe you'll want to stock up on warm, cosy things for yourself or as a present :-)
Back to topic! This year's pumpkin exhibition opened last Friday. On the Saturday, we went to have a look - not specifically for the pumpkins, but because we wanted to have a walk in the palace grounds. The flowers are still beautiful this time of year, but definitely look different now from what it was like only a few weeks ago:
Further on we walked, and arrived at that part of the park where the pumpkin exhibition is set up. This year's theme is "Rome".
|This one is for Kay!|
We continued our walk by crossing the busy road that separates the two parks (palace grounds and the deer park) and took the long, pleasant detour home through the deer park.
No deer was to be seen this time, but the mufflon sheep were enjoying the afternoon sun and green grass on the meadow in front of the game keeper's house.
It was a good way to spend a Saturday afternoon, and all within walking distance.
Tomorrow, I am travelling to O.K.'s. I will be away from home for two weeks and won't be as regular in reading and commenting on your blogs as usual, as I do not like to do much reading and typing on my mobile phone.
