Good Afternoon All
Back from our lovely trip to the Cotswolds. Was a little soggy (ie torrential downpours and thunderstorms!) at times - but nothing to spoil our fun.
Everybody sounds to have been very busy & it seems strange seeing Pat's pictures of the frost when it's been so warm and close here.
Sorry to hear about your day out Fidget - I've wanted to go to Highgrove for a while but I don't fancy your experience. Hope you are feeling much better now.
And everyone else with chestikoffs & exploding dogs....
We went to Hidcote on Monday morning. Got there early doors in pouring rain in the campervan. Directed to the far end of the carpark where there is a superb view over the surrounding countryside so we sat, had a pot of tea & waited for the rain to ease - which it did.
The gardens were superb & ever so slightly bedraggled because heavy rain in an English garden in mid June does that to a garden. IMO they looked all the better for it & made me feel slightly better that some of my garden was looking a bit bashed about when we got home. A wet Monday morning kept the number of fellow visitors at a manageable level & the sun came after an hour or so. The perfumes were enhanced by the rain - lovely....
A few pics to whet your appetites:
Loved the garden and even OH (who doesn't 'do' gardens was impressed! Would have enjoyed going to Kiftsgate too but decided to stay in OH's good books & save it for another time
