It was a pootle slowly kind of jolly for our small music group, taking in woodland scenery, pretty shops and a tasty tearoom.
The Towers is part of an old garden. This is one of the gateposts to the old house. It looks as though it was built using pebbles and stones from the beach.
Since I last walked here pathways have been installed.
These old perimeter walls are made of brick and stone.
There weren't many flowers around and the trees were empty of leaves but birdsong was everywhere.
These birds made more of a 'honking' noise and weren't taking any visitors today at their pond.
These ducks were sunning themselves at the base of an old tree. Just look at the root system.
We did espy some 'blossom on the hedgerow'. Cue song - Sing a Song of Maytime.
Sing a song of Maytime, verse 2
Blossom on the hedgerow,
Sunshine on the hills,
Oh the merry Maytime
All my being fills.
God has given us Maytime,
Thank HIm for his gifts of love,
Sing a song of spring
From Tower Wood we walked through ginnels (There's a good word to discuss.) and residential avenues ...
to our destination.
Whoa! Craft shop, wool shop and fabric shop. Cue song - A Mouse Lived in a Windmill in Old Amsterdam.
We could have stayed there all afternoon.
Beautiful displays and fabric to stroke and coo over.
After all our pootling we ended up here for soup and a sandwich.
