Hello! From a dark grey day in the north of England, pelting with rain, you know the sort of thing. Now I've got the weather report out of the way we can skip back in time to a beautiful sunny day. I find it's quite useful to keep these sunny sort of posts for a rainy day.
These photos would have been taken around June time. We were visiting an open garden, and it was blissfully warm. That is, lovely for us, but uncomfortable for the dogs, they really don't like having to walk in the heat. Douglas (with the smug little smile on his face above) sits down and refuses to walk. Point blank no budging teeny weeny doggy. So Hugo pops him in the 'dog bag' (bag for leads, clean-up bags and dog biscuits). And he stays there contentedly, whilst we get amused looks.
Ellie, you're so little.
Maybe you'd like a look round the garden we went to see? It was beautiful. I loved the walled garden, the gate through which you can just glimpse it, you see above. I think we'll step through the gate and have a look.
The walled garden was on a slope, and someone said there had been terrible flooding earlier in the year, causing a lot of damage. You wouldn't have known this, looking at it. The owners must have worked very hard to get it looking so fabulous.
There's nothing like a cup of tea and a scone to rejuvenate one is there?
Just before I go, I'd like to mention that I deleted my 'zombie fun' post from Monday. The reason for this is that it offended some people, and whilst I did that post with only fun and light-heartedness in mind, my blog isn't about offending folks. Rather than saying nothing about why that post suddenly isn't there any more, I thought I should explain.
Well, I'm off to my beloved Wednesday night knitting group. The sleeves on my stripy dress are finished, and all that remains to be done is finish the neckline, sew some sections up and the sewing in of a few ends. Then it's on to my next project, so exciting! Love Vanessa xxx
