Finally, it's time to travel! I'll be leaving in a few days: first for London (think Chelsea Flower Show) and then to Manchester to stay with daughter and her husband. Yes, it's very exciting!
Yes, London is calling me and this is why:
DAUGHTER HAS MOVED THERE!!
You may or may not know this…but for those of you who do not: well, yes, she moved about a month ago. Many, many months of preparation but it’s all worked out beautifully!!! That’s my girl.
She is in graduate school at University of Westminster, right in London, and has an
apartment flat in a lovely neighborhood.
And this is part of what she’s studying:
Last Thursday she had her first full day of meetings, classes, orientation etc. and this was what she posted to me on What’sApp:

Here is just a small preview of some of the gardens on my tour in the Costwolds…something to whet your appetite and perhaps you will turn a bit pea green!
Our first day includes Hidcote Manor
Three generations of women gardeners: that alone makes me want to visit.
and Campden House
This is the “white sunk garden”; just one of the many gardens in this private estate.
And this is only our first day!! It will be a true luxury to be with other “garden geeks” as my husband likes to call me. No, he will not be there!
My first three nights will be here at
Cotswold House Hotel and Spa
Let’s hope we return in the afternoons in time for tea…always my favorite time.
So there you have a short introduction to my upcoming trip. Oh yes, there is lots more of course. I’m seeing various friends and […]
