First up, Rowallane Gardens in Saintfield, Co Down…where I wore Neon & Wellies…
|Just like it said on the tin – Neon & Wellies
Neon Vest – H&M
Jeans - French Connection (old)
Wellies – Karrimor
These photos were taken in the walled garden where the kids had great fun running about and looking for tadpoles in the pond…
I layered this little jacket over the vest to tone down the neon a bit! I picked it up in a charity shop in Belfast a few months ago..
I’m as guilty as the next mammy in thinking there’s nothing for kids to do in a lovely garden like this but I was reminded today that kids don’t need face painters or bouncy castles to have fun. My three never stopped running about having a ball and they were surprisingly interested in the different flowers (they get that from their dad). Add in a few trees to climb and it was pretty much the perfect day out!
If you’ve a recommendation for a National Trust property near you, please add it to the comments below for everyone to see (and for me to potentially visit!). I’m particularly interested in ones in the Berkshire area and in Cornwall. Thanks girls!!
