My family and I went to Sizergh Castle last Thursday, which everyone enjoyed. The castle was beautiful on this summery day, and I loved every moment of it!
A newborn lamb we found! As we approached I grew alarmed at how still he was, fearing that perhaps he was dead. Thankfully he was alive, just weak and very young. I found him really adorable.
Every ornament never fails to capture my attention for a while.
These china plates have very intricate illustration on them that would go perfectly with the decor of my room. I love the toile like feel! In the following photos I tried to focus on small, individual details inside the castle for more interest.
They have the months of the year in French inscribed upon them, and each picture is unique.
This beautiful faux-shepherdess portrait left me stunned, as the gorgeous blue dress has so much detail and an aristocratic air. No wonder the Rococo and Georgian eras has so much of an influence on Lolita fashion! However the weird thing is, the lady in the portrait is literally my doppelganger - if she had blonde hair, we would appear identical!
Isn't this tapestry cushion the cutest! I would love to have one of these in my bedroom.
There were lovely daffodils and a wonderful view from the bench that I sat at alone, just taking photos and enjoying the sunny weather after such a long winter.
Swans may be evil, but they are also incredibly elegant with their long necks and snowy white colour. I love the way the water ripples around it in this photo, and you can just see the beads of water dripping from its beak. I'm quite proud of this one.
Some people may find it gross, but I love the look of frogspawn, as when I was younger I went through a phase of being obsessed with collecting frogs! The frogspawn appears like lots and lots of monster eyes under the surface of the water.
The rockery had many interesting plant-life and insects to spot.
A peacock butterfly I only just managed to capture. It may be small, but I love the way it is central to my picture. The reds and purples in the background match the main colour of its wings.
