Roses on a trellis

Well this is a funny old HDYGG, I don't really know where to start. I decided this week that I'm going to be stopping blogging and winding things down over the next week. I've a couple of posts from Sierra Leone I would like to get published and a proper 'why I'm stopping' post.

HDYGG has been my favourite time of the week for the past 3 (yes three!) years, I love it dearly. Over the past few months though I've struggled to visit the posts linking up and haven't had the chance to sit down and really write a post for it that hasn't been a 'rush job'. Funnily enough this one included.

I'm going to gently pick it up and take it over to Instagram next week, to continue for no.164 onwards. I'm genuinely sorry if this offends or upsets any of the regular HDYGGers, I feel like we're a bit of a part-time band of merry (wo)men and that I'm letting the side down. Please remember it's not over, it's just moving 💛


Photos this week were taken at Houghton Lodge and Gardens on a recent day out. It's a gem of a place - beautiful gardens, riverside walk, yummy-cake-serving tearoom. So gooooood.

Thanks to all who joined in last week, some faves include: a walled garden, a quiet beauty, cottage gardens & a growing garden.
