Did you know the 1998 Hallmark version of The Secret Garden was totally filmed at Highclere Castle? We rewatched it last night and my husband said "that's Highclere Castle Bernideen" and then we looked at the end of the movie for the credits and sure enough - there it was! The walled garden was there - will they ever show us that in future seasons of Downton Abbey? If you have children, The Secret Garden is a wonderful story for the family.
I had a lovely Lemon Pound Cake in the oven all during the movie last night......I have made this before on my blog. The recipe is right HERE. The ingredients in this cake are probably in your kitchen right now.
I am inviting other bloggers to join me by posting anything about home, garden, sewing, crafting, floral, cooking, tea, etc. Some of you in warmer areas have your gardens up and going. This is Thursday which means OPEN HOUSE IS HERE! Join in the fun and link below! I am asking you to have a link on your post to this post.
I am also linking to some blogging friends: HOME and Home and Garden Thursday and Foodie Friday and Cottage Style Party
