The Easter weekend has been a damp one so far but today Easter Sunday 🐣 looks about the best day. Hoomans decided it was time for a trip to Chatsworth House
We parked up fairly close to the house and had jackets and Easter bandanas on before heading into the gardens. The first thing we saw was Hoomoms favourite sculpture has moved outside
I think it’s her favourite as there is a mini me on it. So from the tiny to the big 🐴
These chaps are giving rides up and down the path. Sadly dogs aren’t allowed on them. As you can see on the first photo across the house are wicker animals.
The first ones we came across were by the weather station.
Another small animal but the next animals we came across were huge !
We then headed along the path next to the emperor fountain and canal pond
This takes you to a small coffee stand that today was open but really only opens in the summer. Left towards to the maze. By now I was getting tired and had a rest.
Dad took Star round the outside of the maze and saw a great view.
But she is not always the best at standing still and posing for photos and this is a good example.
They came back to us and I then found some rabbits.
You can tell they have been busy in the gardens in the winter opening up space in the rockery and putting down lots of mulch. It didn’t seem to bother Freddy fox 🦊 much though.
I do like walking round Chatsworth gardens as there are lots of streams to cool your paws off in or get a drink.
By now my 12.5 year old paws were getting tired so it was a walk along the middle path.
Although I was tempted to take a seat.
But we plodded on to the top entrance of the garden. At the carriages shops Hoodad got a chair and laid our fleecy blankets out and covered us with our blankets (Mr Mole Blankets)
Whilst Hoomom went in the house. She came back 40 minutes or so later but said it was really busy in the house.
I didn’t get to see all of the wicker animals so if you do get to Chatsworth send me a photo of the ones you find.
We popped into Bakewell and saw our friends in Orvis Bakewell they are very dog friendly and have lots of great doggie stuff. Today they were doing a charity photo shoot for Ashbourne Animal welfare I had to be carried up the stairs but the photo was well worth it
Happy Easter 🐣 everyone.
