Manor Park Country Park

Back in March this year, we decided to go to Manor Park Country Park which is located at West Malling.  Well we wanted to go somewhere where we could test out our cameras and somewhere that was not that far away from home.  We only had limited time that day you see, as we had family coming over, so West Malling is not that far away, so it got our vote.

The tress were just becoming into blossom and their new leaves were just beginning to form, but you could see through the barren branches to get such spectacular views.

One of the things I love is hearing the sound of running water. I just love water features, whether they be streams, waterfalls, lakes or ponds.

I don’t think a garden is complete without a some water feature or other. In our garden we have a Koi pond and a three tier water feature, (well dog’s watering hole to be more precise). Continue reading →
