Dorset is beautiful wherever you go.

But don’t let them hear you say that in Somerset! Today is Tim’s day off so this morning it was gardening (for him) and making Easter cards, (late again), for me.  This afternoon as  it was a beautiful sunny one, we went for a walk around Lambert’s Castle, a nearby Iron Age Fort now owned by the National Trust.  You can find the walk we followed on the National Trust web site. Here are a few photo’s I took along the way.  If you are in the area it is well worth a visit.  There is also a shorter walk on the castle itself and a longer one which takes in Lambert’s Castle and Coney Castle, another beautiful spot, especially in bluebell season.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, one son-in-law and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
