A British bank holiday weekend with wall-to-wall sunshine! Granted it followed the most horrific thunder/rain storms our Weather can throw at us, but gratefully not as bad as some have had it.
We have been down to East Sussex to stay with my grand-daughter because it was her parents’ wedding anniversary on Saturday. They live up a long winding drive that leads off a long winding lane, now full of pot-holes with the long rainy Winter we’ve just enjoyed. But the effort was worth it for this:-
The lake is full of ducks of all descriptions – and I can still hear them in my head back home in Hampshire they were so noisy at times, probably because it was so quiet there any noises seemed extraordinarily loud.
On Sunday we went to Sissinghurst Castle in Kent, the once home of Vita Sackville-West and her beautiful gardens.
It was lovely and relaxing after quite a few weeks of struggling with health issues, but it was a pick-me-up and I came back full of energy and home to laundry and getting busy with my own very modest garden.
