mud-Honest MumA day at the RHS garden Harlow Carr, mostly muddy puddle jumping!

I’ve been meaning to write this post for ages-a perfect if not slightly muddy day (see puddle jumping GIF above of Alexander) as we embarked on an Easter egg hunt at the RHS Harlow Carr gardens in Harrogate (now even closer to us since moving house) where the kids explored, played, smelt flowers and hunted for golden Lindt (sadly inedible) bunnies.

It’s days like these are full of happiness, Betty’s coffee and cakes, dirty wellies and smiley faces. Now the sun is out we can’t wait to return again, observing the gardens grow through the seasons-what a joy!

Another of our Yorkshire happy places. Now if only that big bunny had been edible!

    Brilliant timing! Hubbie bought me RHS membership for my birthday and we are hoping to visit one of their gardens in next few weeks but weren’t sure how child-friendly they would be. Now we know!Looks like you all had fun.
