The weekend's fun

The sun was out so the barbeque got put to good use. Our New York guests were excellent chefs and the food was in plentiful supply. The energetic tried their hand at swing ball and once it got too cool everyone went inside for another game this time Jenga. A lovely evening was had by all.

Tears of joy and tears of sadness Part 2

I have so many photos of our visit to Chelsea. We had the most fabulous day and would recommend it to anyone slightly interested in their garden. However as so often in life when you have a really exciting, uplifting experience sadly there is a downer. On our way home to the airport not only did our train break down but very sadly some unfortunate person had been killed by a train. Our hearts went out to the emergency people having to deal with the matter and to the family of the poor person who would no doubt be left questioning why. So my thought for today is to take time to enjoy ourselves as we never know when we don't have tomorrow. So have a weekend away and get your batteries recharged, come and stay at Whitethorn Cottages.
PS The last photo is inspired by Rhubarb and custard. Thanks to May Fox for all the lovely recipes she sent me using rhubarb. It was very kind of her to take the time and trouble to send them to me. Thanks
