|TAKING A BREATHER!|
|WALK UP TO THE FIRST FOLLY|
Beautiful sunshine this afternoon after dark grey skies and heavy rain showers in the morning. Today my friend H & I went to Painswick in Gloucestershire to walk around the beautiful Rococco Gardens. It was mostly an amble for us, as I get out of puff quite easily still. Lots of little inclines and descents, a maze which H happily negotiated with me shouting out instructions from above, and lots of lovely follies, and benches for me to sit on! Beautiful gardens within espaliered fruit trees, and delicious looking vegetable plot, a plunge pool with its own spring, the whole place was also dotted with various sculptures, from etiolated metal herons by the big pond, to solid wooden sheep and massive iron cherries in the orchard. So I have a lovely day and a lovely trip and had plenty of exercise - about 2 miles of rambling. A win:win on the exercise front!
It's been a fabulous day. Tomorrow is a lunch date at the allotment, I'm hoping for another sunny afternoon.
