30 Days Blogging Challenge – Day #4

Bonjour chers lecteurs!

We are back again, as our 30 Days Blogging Challenge is proving to be very popular! Today, it should be a picture of somewhere I have been.

We recently went to Borde Hill Garden in Sussex for a day out. I decided to write about this place as I really enjoyed visiting it with its beautiful garden. De plus, a lot of photos from this post happened to be very favoured on my Instagram. So I thought I would share them again with you.

Eh oui, Frenchie Mummy is not really following the rules as she is supposed to share une photo, but I can’t resist as the place is just divine!

Let’s start with the garden. It’s so beautiful, I don’t think I need to write more about it. The picture talks for itself.

When you enter the garden, it’s like being in a movie ?

It was like being in Alice in Wonderland again! I loved walking around with Baba and Grumpy Boyfriend in the shades and just relax. That is what weekends are supposed to be like! To make it more wonderful, we actually visited the tea room, where I had a massive piece of chocolate cake!

Grumpy Boyfriend fancied this woman ?

The place is very peaceful if you fancy meditating! Not that we could do so with un bébé.

I think that one of my favourite parts was le jardin italien.

Le jardin méditerranéen

As you can see in the photo, there is a beautiful fountain and you can sit down. Baba loved observing the water lilies in it.

If you feel like being more adventurous than us, the woody part would be perfect for you. We didn’t go much into it as we had the pushchair. But we made sure to take some photos souvenirs!

Let’s not go to the woods. Let’s pose for photos instead!

Baba also had his personal picnic on the green!

The baby didn’t forget about food!

And we were lucky enough to attend a day when a free choir was playing music in the afternoon.

A future musician ignoring his mum…

As you can see here, Baba had very little interest in Maman at that point. I am actually hoping that he will be musical like his papa!

It’s a gorgeous place and I strongly recommend to visit it on a sunny day with your family or friends. You can also bring all your stuff and have a picnic on the grass. And you can end the day by buying some homemade jam in the shop!

Les belles fleurs, if you like gardening…

Here we go! A place that I loved visiting with ma famille recently. I hope you enjoyed it!

What were your best family days out? I would love to hear about places that you enjoyed visiting. Do you want to recommend anywhere you think is worth checking out?
