Shame about the ladder

This was originally going to be a silent Sunday, but then I had these six questions! So a Six Word Saturday it became.

Is that a raised eyebrow? Why does the ladder have to go up so far? Should I photoshop the ladder out? Is the ladder permanent? Couldn’t they have a third ladder for the final section? But most importantly of all has this Stourhead monument always had a sun?!

Did the monument always have a sun?!

    1. Oh that’s excellent news. Thank you so much for letting me know. Your stunning gardens are a regular haunt for my Mum, and occasionally I’m lucky enough to join her.


      1. Your most welcome. Stourhead is a stunning place, i am very lucky to be there twice a week. A lot of people walk up to the monument and past it since it is a footpath. Even tho i enjoy the walking i will stick with just the gardens as they are big enough.

      2. oh wow you certainly are fortunate, and yes I can imagine two days a week gardening there is sufficient to keep you fit and enjoy the beauty of the gardens. πŸ™‚


      3. Honestly it’s great being there, on a sunny day there is no other place i rather be. Posting about what i do on word press i am just seeing how it goes, maybe i will post every month as we do different types of jobs.

  1. I quite like the ladder. It adds a quirky human touch – you can only imagine it is a bit too long out of care for whoever climbs it to clean or gild. The overlap might be a big comfort that high up.

    1. Hee hee Jude can’t recall it either! The monument has definitely been there a while, it’s by the ha-ha. But that sun I’m sure is new. I should probably tweet the NT.


  2. I couldn’t Photoshop the ladder to save my life! Sitting in the Ibis lounge waiting for James. Thanks for the walk the other day. Not had opportunity to read properly and enjoy. Doubt there will be a Monday walk next week but you never know. We don’t get home till after 8 tomorrow evening. Taking family to a Christmas lantern walk this afternoon πŸ˜ƒπŸŽ„πŸ’•

    1. Hee hee, I’m not great at photoshopping but think I’d manage this.

      Enjoy your lantern walk, does this mean you are now homeless in England if you’re waiting in the Ibis lounge? Travel safe tomorrow xxx


      1. Yes. Said fond farewells to the Yorkshire Moors yesterday with an excellent pub lunch. Staying at James’ tonight and watching movies with a bottle of prosecco. I can just about cope with my life πŸΈπŸ’•
