Hugging a Tree

Hello, no shopping to do yesterday so instead we went for a lovely walk in Bradgate Park, this really is a magical place and as you can see the trees are magnificent and very very old, the little lady you can see hugging a tree is my friend cottonreel, we wanted to show you how big the trees are so she went and hugged one. We walked through this beautiful park and watched the children riding their bikes and walking with Mums and Dads and Grandma's and Grandpa's having a lovely time some were fedding the ducks there were lots of ducks and the deer were a little bit elusive but they are rutting at the moment and we could hear the males making a lot of noise trying to prove they were the best, we saw a field with lots of females grazing and a huge buck sat in the middle I presume this was his harem. The park also has a ruin of a house and it is where Lady Jane Grey stayed. If you google Bradgate Park Leicestershire England it will tell you the history of this beautiful place.

What a great web log. I spend hours on the net reading blogs, about tons of various subjects. I have to first of all give praise to whoever created your theme and second of all to you for writing what i can only describe as an fabulous article. I honestly believe there is a skill to writing articles that only very few posses and honestly you got it. The combining of demonstrative and upper-class content is by all odds super rare with the astronomic amount of blogs on the cyberspace.
