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.
Beautiful photos. Everything is so green.
That would be thanks to all the rain! It was beautiful, the sunshine helped too. It is now pouring with rain again. Hey Ho! English weather!
I love the shade of green in England , it is so different from our Australian colours of Olive and Silver Greens.
Everything looks so clean and fresh in your country. I suppose no one photos the mud , which results from all that rain.:)
Sounds like you had a lovely time. The weather has been unusually sunny for both May bank holidays – I note the rain all night Mon-Tue though. Still, we got our garden looking tip top yesterday then celebrated by prancing about it having photographs taken of my latest sewing make!
I must see those! glad you had a lovely time too.
