  1. If you saw our last blog post you'll know that at the weekend we visited Baddesley Clinton and Packwood House. Today we're sharing photos from Packwood House which is probably our favourite National Trust venue so far!

    We saw a few bumblebees at Packwood in the flower trees near the bee skeps who were very busy pollinating the flowers and this cutie on the lavender in the gardens too!

     

  2. We had to drive over to Walsall on Sunday to pick up a piece of furniture that we'd won on eBay so whilst we were in the West Midlands, we thought we'd pop to see a couple of National Trust gardens, and what lovely weather we had! We visited Baddesley Clinton and Packwood House which are only about five minutes away from each other. We'll start off with our photos from Baddesley Clinton which is a moated manor house near Warwick.

    The gardens at BC were beautiful and we spotted lots of bees including bombus terrestris (buff-tailed bumblebee) and bombus lapidarius (red-tailed bumblebee) which you can see in the photos above!

    We'll be sharing photos of more bees at our trip to Packwood in our next post. For more details on Baddesley Clinton, visit here.
