Beautiful bluebells

If you've been waiting for the carpets of blue to arrive, now is the time to come.  The Great Wood is already covered, but there are still a few to pop up, so you should be in for a treat for rest of April, through to early May.

The majestic Mausoleum 

This tomb, for the 2nd Earl of Buckinghamshire and his two wives, is almost unique in the UK. From outside it's a pyramid, inside it's a dome. It's also visible from the garden and is a favourite with our Blickling barn owls who are often seen hunting close by.
