Nostell Priory and its surrounding parkland is a delight on a sunny spring day. Mid-week, the number of visitors is limited and it is easy to relax on one of the benches and watch the time, or geese, go by. Over the last five years or so the gardeners have transformed the grounds, cutting out the wild rhododendrons and diseased trees to allow light and wild flowers in. The highlight today must be the "hyacinth walk" where the fragrance was powerful and sweet. Take a walk, savour the scent, enjoy the lake and flowers. And do visit my Instagram pages.
