Part two of my two part yearly review is but a quick whizz through the months of July to December in the grounds at Compton Verney. Snapped while out and about in the grounds, some are composed, yet most were grabbed on the mobile. They open up such a small window on a world I love to be in, a world full of colour, texture and substance. Needless to say it's been a very busy and challenging year, but, the last thing you need right now is another blow-by-blow account, so I'll stick with my plan of photographs and descriptions. This time, having experienced some issues uploading last time, I’ve switched and chosen Flickr as a way to display the images. Let’s see if it works - Enjoy!

How very satisfying it must be to make a page like this. It gives a wider impression for those of us who only see Compton Verney through your blog - sort of pieces together the atmosphere.

Thanks for comment Lucy. The range of work seems quite straight forward at first, but in fact no two days are the same. I guess that's what makes working at an arts and heritage so interesting - I love it! It's just getting so busy just now there isn't a spare moment to stand back and take it all in, let alone blog about it! Best Wishes, Gary
