Squeals of Delight at Wimpole

My fledgling National Trust membership has been getting quite a bit of exercise over the past couple months. Between trips to Anglesey Abbey and Wicken Fen, I've had more than my fair share of tea and scones. Last weekend, I had the chance to add yet another property to my list, Wimpole Estate in Royston. A short fifteen minute drive from Cambridge takes you to some gorgeous countryside, formal gardens, and the obligatory country house.

A Walk in the Garden

The weather has been unusually warm this week. The sun and spring-like feel to the air has rather inspired me with a bit more energy than I have had recently. While Carol, the weather person on BBC Breakfast has assured me in her lovely Scottish accent that the warm spell is unlikely to last long, I cannot help but hope we've said farewell to the cold weather at least until next year.
