Do join me this morning, put on your matching hats marked, ' Grockles R Us' and off we go, through the Devon lanes, to a real grock trap... but a pretty one nonetheless...
If you are in Devon or plan to come for a visit, I highly recommend
And observe the surroundings, basking in all it's glory, underneath the very blue, Devon sky.
It sets us up very nicely for a jolly jaunt!
A little way up the hill...
What a pretty little abode!
shade is much appreciated, don't you think?
A most beautiful arboretum surrounds us.
With Cockington Court in the distance.
This is a delight.
Often you might see a cricket match taking place.
There is so much open space too. And it cost not a penny to get in!
Just £3 for parking and believe me, it is worth every penny of that!
Here, you can stop for another cuppa, if you so fancy.
You might well need it as there is still so much to take in... and admire!
Now then...pay attention!
If you think you've had a very pleasant time so far then you just wait...because what I have in store for you next, is some stunning stuff!!
Everything is coming up..... Roses!
This Rose garden is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen... and I have seen a few!
But oh, the scent!
Aroma after aroma hits you from every direction!
It is breathtaking!
Sights and smells mingle
together to produce the most idyllic setting.
But that's not all!
More to be revealed tomorrow in Part Two!
What a fabulous Saturday morning!
