Some of us are lucky in terms of having a lovely estate to go to for walks almost in the back garden. Today I had a walk in the grounds of the lovely Knole Park with a friend, enjoying the scenery, deers grazing peacefully, birds singing – it was so beautiful, especially when the sun came up too. To make it even better we had a lovely cream tea in the tea room garden afterwards, and a quick walk around the Knole House, which is a National Trust property in Sevenoaks, Kent (I’ve written before about Sevenoaks too, and here’s the link to that post).
The house wasn’t open yet, so I took a look at the exteriors and enjoyed the pretty little details – and there are so many starting from something so very mundane as the gutters (that just were so elaborate). Sometimes it’s so easy to forget to enjoy the little things in life and just look at the big picture but this morning it was all about “them pretty little details”. My favourite parts of the Knole House include the lights, gutters (yes!), doors, windows, courtyards, statues, those cute towers… just pretty much every detail one can spot!
