It’s a very relaxing week, but the men got a bit of a bum deal this year – the weather and the fishing was not good, and my poor Jim’s back went on the last but one day.  Hope they’re not put off as it works very well for Jane and I!

We had one day with good weather, and I took lots of  photos of the gardens – they’re very inspiring and well worth a visit.
