Allerton Park

Uncle M had the brilliant idea to take a nice Sunday picnic at Allerton Park. We started the day with a hike in the woods, then ate lunch with the bees, and ended with a stroll through the formal gardens.  It was lovely, and I think we should make it a fall tradition!  Uncle M also takes fabulous photos and caught some really great shots of our adventures.  Enjoy!

Into the woods we go!

All around the mulberry bush,
the monkey chased the weasel
the monkey thought twas all in fun

POP goes the weasel!

Fall colors with Uncle M!

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah.

Emerging from the woods.

Picnicking in the shade in front of the Allerton mansion .  Lovely!

Walking into the formal gardens.
