The OH was going to take a picture of Garden at the Beginning of Month as I'd left him and Monkey in charge of the garden whilst I was at Mum's, but I'd also taken the camera with me. So it'll have to wait for next weekend. In the meantime, these are some of the things I got up to at Mum's.
Obligatory photo of Sweep looking cute:
We visited a newish garden centre, at Floral Media in Caunton.
There was a bit of a gardening theme to my entire visit, as we then went on to visit Clumber Park, which has opened its walled gardens to the public. Clumber is somewhere I visited a lot when I was small, but the first time I'd visited in a while. Whilst the main house (think Downton Abbey, this was the country estate of the Dukes of Newcastle!) was demolished in 1938, the lake, parkland, chapel and gardens are still there. The walled gardens are amazing, absolutely huge, with a 450ft glasshouse (only half of which is open), where grapes are grown.
Normal blogging service will be resumed soon! I didn't get much knitting done whilst I was away, that's the downside to driving there.
