The Home and Garden Event, 21st May 2011
Lin and I went to the castle to see the Home and Garden event with the prospect of going home with some plants. However, there were plenty of other things to see in the grounds. We spent some time in the gardens, visited the maze and grotto and watched the bird show. We were spoilt with lovely sunny weather for an interesting day.

The falcon is shown to the public.
It is the turn of the Macaw.
The Macaw has a large wingspan.
There must be some food for the Macaw.
The storks arrive and ask for food and …
… they all get something.
