Biddulph Grange Garden

This afternoon we took the Podlings to visit Biddulph Grange Garden. This beautiful Victorian garden is about five miles from where we live, but this is the first time we have visited it. We have been to the nearby Biddulph Grange Country Park several times, but have never quite made it to the actual gardens. I'm sure this was the first of many visits as we had such a lovely time here.

Mark's parents were visiting this afternoon, so they were able to join us for a pleasant afternoon wandering around these impressive gardens. We only saw a portion of the garden today, but since the property is so near to us we will definitely come back again. The Podlings had a fabulous time running around and exploring the hidden nooks and crannies. I only heard portions of their games as they ran around, but there was plenty in the garden to feed their active imaginations. They all loved the enormous Koi in the lake and we had a hard time getting Emma to leave it. In short, we all had a splendid time!
