The letter for this week’s Alphabe-Thursday is ‘G’ and I’ve gone for GOLD. It is just an excuse to share some photos of one of my favourite places. I’ve mentioned it in ‘Winnie and Me!’ The ‘Winnie’ refers to Sir Winston Churchill and the place is his home in Kent called Chartwell.

It is just a magic place for me – both the grounds and the house. It oozes his strength and determination. Hubby and I visited in that time between Christmas and New Year. The National Trust own it all now and although the house is closed up for the winter, the grounds are open all year round.

So, here are some photos with the theme GOLD.


Some explanations:

  • They are golden carp (not gold fish)
  • The bare avenue is ‘The Golden Wedding Anniversary Rose Garden’. Obviously it’s winter so no roses
  • The bushes are of beech
  • The seat is on the opposite side of the pond and it is where Winston would write or paint.
Do visit if you can. It has history, literature and wonderful gardens!
Do pop over to Jenny Matlock’s blog ‘Off on my Tangent’ to see what other ‘G’s there are.
