Walmer Castle in Winter

Here we are in one of our favourite local castles, Walmer, it’s a favourite not only because it is fairly close (28 miles) but also because it’s garden is well protected from the elements so you can enjoy a stroll around Walmer’s garden in all seasons.

Down in the cellars.

Exit the house into the gardens.

I love visiting the Kitchen Garden.

Crocus blooming.

A patch of cyclamen under a huge tree.

and beautiful snowdrops everywhere.

Early daffodils.


Sunshine was awesome because the temperature was freezing.

We had to have a Queen Mother’s Cream tea before we left to warm us up!

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia to Polish parents, my upbringing was totally influenced by strong family values, Polish culture and customs based on Roman Catholic calendar, as well as the folkloric aspect of dressing up in regional dress and performing in Polish Folk Dancing, as well as the consumption of many home cooked Polish meals. Today, I live with my English husband in the UK, and I am a mother of two (all grown now) and grandma to one (granddaughter 6yrs). I love to travel, walk, take photos, blog, cook and spend time with my family in Australia (when I get the chance). I have a huge interest in natural medicine, which lead me to study at university in my 40's. I love exploring what this life is about, which has included reading motivational, spiritual and self-empowerment books and attending self-empowerment courses.
