I really did mean to post while I was away!
I had visions of settling down for one or two evenings, gathering some of my images and thoughts, and quickly putting together a blog post for you. Well, as you can see that didn’t quite come to pass.

Ten days in England and not a drop of rain! Yes indeed…we had magnificent weather. It wasn’t always sunny, but even with overcast skies the temperature was perfect.

My desk, and mind, is still piled too high with ideas and clippings and bits of this and that to know where to begin a first post about the trip. Instead, I thought I would show you some of the images I had posted on Instagram throughout my time away. If you are a follower there, well, then you have seen these. But for the rest of you, they will give you a small glimpse of what I saw and where I was.


This is how it all began. Kind of neat, no? I asked if I could take a picture of the gate area (you never know these days) and the attendant asked my name and quickly flashed this up there!!



We had three separate train trips: this was London Liverpool Station on my way to Suffolk.



Morning tea at my friend’s house.



The V&A “painted” in Waterlogue app.



So many beautiful gardens. Words, and pictures, cannot describe all that I learned from seeing these…



Finally…I made it to Sissinghurst Gardens! I will do an entire post on this in the very near future!



Color and more color!



Another spot of gorgeous color near Holland Park.

I’ll be writing more posts on the various parts of my trip from the many fabulous restaurants and food to country gardens to new friends to walking ’til we dropped….so check back often!
