Even though it is rather cold it is good garden visiting weather. The other day when wandering around the garden we mused that this year there should be more picnics. Now I do enjoy a good picnic, even a not so good picnic, though I do not enjoy wasps. Wasps are the spoiling of a picnic unfortunately. Anyhoo, no wasps this time of year and we determined that the next garden we visited would involve a picnic.
A nice Saturday arrived, a bit chilly, a bit cloudy, but nice all the same so we wandered off to a NGS opening of the Dower House, Melbourne.
We then wandered off to explore further. We found the path that goes along the far side of pool. This path takes you alongside the back of Melbourne Hall where we stood and marvelled at this fantastically bumpy yew hedge.
We also wandered into the local church,
When we had set out in the morning I had expected us to spend an hour or so at the house and then wander off to somewhere near by. As it was we were there and in the vicinity most of the day. Days that surpass expectations are always good ones.
and there will be more picnics.
