1 Year of Brodsworth

July 28, 2019

For the last couple of years, I have been undertaking an ongoing project; filming precious moments of my life for two seconds every day. I then collate these in a mini video montage so that I can watch it back and remember personal highlights throughout the year. I started doing this back in 2014 and still try to continue it to date. Over the years I have found it bittersweet to see the people that have come and gone in my life, but the reminder of all the lovely memories is invaluable. So, I decided to channel the idea into the love I have for my job and film Brodsworth changing throughout the seasons! It has been such a wonderful first year working in the gardens and each week there has been something magical and new to discover. I feel so lucky to work in such a wonderful place and I hope this video captures just how charming Brodsworth can be.
