The Oxford Diaries: Bank Holiday Adventure

Well that's it, the last bank holiday of summer! It really does feel like summer has ended now here in Oxford. The sun has disappeared and been replaced with a slight chill in the air, the brambles are laden down with blackberries and already the leaves have begun to turn. Of course, I don't mind a bit as autumn is my favourite season of all but it was lovely to have one last weekend of summer before the new season begins. 

We decided to have a very chilled bank holiday Monday and so went to one of our favourite local National Trust properties for a slow walk around the grounds.  

I couldn't believe how autumnal the place felt with leaves strewn across the paths. I think this might have been my last chance to have bare legs and wear sandals. 

As always at Waddesdon Manor the grounds were spectacular. They really do have some of the best flowers of any National Trust we've visited as well as the most beautiful architecture. Every time we visit I feel like I've been swept off into my favourite Disney film, The Beauty and the Beast. 

After a lovely relaxing walk, spending some quality time together chatting about what this new season will bring, we slowly made our way home to watch films and share a delicious curry (M&S of course!). It was the perfect end to a lovely summer.
