“It never snows in Exeter.”
Words I’m sure I said, just a few weeks ago.
This was taken just as our second snow storm in about two weeks was thawing away.
I guess, the question is. Is it going to snow again over Easter? Or will we actually get a chance to sort out the garden?
One of many tranquil places we found at the National Trust – Knightshayes estate. These flowers growing, were in the perfect position to catch the sun as it shone over the hill, and through the trees.
We didn’t have time to check it out as much as we’d like, but if you’re in the Tiverton / Devon area, I’d recommend giving it an explore.
What a week!
It never snows in Exeter. At the end of this week we weren’t able to drive out the driveway at one point. (And my poor bike almost looked like it was getting buried at one point)
All this snow, makes choosing just one picture difficult. I liked this as it was a little different to the normal “toy photos” that I take.
I was tempted to choose a smiling little person picture – but there were so many of those to choose from!
Killerton, our local National Trust property, may well be our new favourite place to go to as a family…

A random Monday mornings school ran led to being dropped a short distance away from where I live.
This was the view of Exeter from where I began my walk.
The other day, we finally decided to take the leap.
With National Trust – Killerton just down the road, we figured it was about time.
We finally signed up to National Trust membership, and explored Killerton on Sunday evening .
I had forgotten how beautiful that area is, and its just down the road.
