Baddesley Clinton in February

The first Sunday in February was one of those rare days for 2014 so far, in that it didn't rain. So I headed up to Warwickshire to photograph the medieval moated manor house of Baddesley Clinton. The gardens and grounds were too waterlogged to explore fully, but I still got some decent pictures:

The ducks certainly seemed to be enjoying themselves:

Crossing the bridge over the moat gave me a chance to have a good look at the courtyard:

In summer the beds are filled with flowers in the family's colours:

Then inside, I found a splendid kitchen:

Not to mention this fine chap in the library:

Finally, I went back outside and explored the other area of the gardens that were open that day, around the back of the house:
