Elvis Goes To Scotney
We returned to Scotney Castle this weekend, it's only been a couple of weeks since I last went, but some of my friends wanted to visit and I was more than happy to oblige as it's such a beautiful place. Elvis and a couple of his travel hamster friends, Harriet & Hamilton, came with us as well so it was a proper day out!
It's funny how so much can change in two weeks. Last time I visited the garden was covered in Daffodils and there wasn't nearly so much green around. Now, the fountain has water in, there are protected Orchids blooming in the lawn, leaves bursting out of the trees and it is Bluebell season.
Elvis, Harriet and Hamilton were really enjoying running around the grounds, and found a little hollow in one of Scotney's oldest and most tended to trees (it needs more looking after in it's old age). They were very careful not to damage the tree but paused there momentarily for a quick group photo.
Elvis was imagining himself the Lord and Master of the ruined, old castle, putting on his posh accent and proclaiming things to the other people in the room from his window ledge position.
The weather was a bit variable and we had a few spots of rain. Luckily we found a very cool, sheltered spot under a tunnel of trees by the Chinese Bridge. I think this is a new favourite place for young Elvis!
