This is what our summer should have been like! But I am not complaining, I just love these glorious early summer like days of Autumn, where the skies are a clear blue and the sun is warm.
We made the most of the day by going out to English Heritage Audley End.
The good thing about going to these places during the week at this time of year is that there is hardly anyone around!
Which means we can wander around 'our' stately property and simply enjoy the peace and quiet.
When the weather is like this there seems to be a feeling of complete tranquility

I have posted similar pictures before, but with the changing seasons the colours are always different.
The ducks were enjoying the sunshine on the water.
The flowers were glorious.
Such a richness of colour.
I just love the vibrancy of these flowers.
Autumn harvest displays laid out
Wonderful shapes and colours.
Wonderful purple aubergine
Sitting in the sun and soaking up that Vitamin D
The water was wonderfully reflective
Percy enjoyed his day out.
Just before we came home we took him up the hill and let him off and he ran races with my husband.
Weeee I can fly!
Look, no feet!
I think they both enjoyed themselves!
It was a truly wonderful day - only marred by the quiche that I didn't realise had been made with goats cheese....it tasted like an old Billy goat smells! I was almost sick and I still feel like I have that taste lingering inside.
