I was one if the first visitors to Tyntesfield on August bank holiday Monday. Headed straight to the woods where there is a tree house built especially for bears.
It took a little while for me to climb up to the platform.
Then on up the bear pole…
It felt good to be up with the trees.
Eventually I climbed right to the top. This alarmed my humans slightly.
Afterwards I made my way to the pumpkin patch to see how well they were growing.
This one was nearly as tall as me…
Here I am in the walled garden. A very special place where produce is grown for use in the cafe and sale on the produce table.
The celeriac was growing very well.
At the produce table I bought a large courgette and a freshly picked punnet of raspberries.
In the pavillion café I bought a piece of courgette and lemon cake to try. It was surprisingly yummy.
There is a lovely view across the fields from the picnic area behind the Pavillion cafe.
Before walking back to the car park I took a selfie of myself (of course) in front of the house.
I always enjoy visiting Tyntesfield and will be back again soon.
