This morning Linda and I took both dogs over to Upton Heath for a walk. Although I took the camera I only ended up taking video of Max walking to show to the vet. His back legs are very wobbly now and he spends a lot of time with his knees bent. I will need to make an appointment for him next week.
In the afternoon, though, while Chris walked the dogs, Linda and I had a trip to Kinston Lacy. Once again it was a lovely, sunny afternoon.
The flower beds close to the house were a riot of colour.
We had a leisurely stroll around the grounds, but didn’t go into the house. This was the Japanese garden looking lovely in the summer sun.
We climbed up the bank opposite and made our way to a little bamboo hut with a seat in it and I got a nice photo of Linda.
After that we walked down to kitchen garden, and then back around the lime avenue and through the Victorian fernery before we headed back to the car.
From Kingston Lacy we drove to the Pamphill farm shop where Linda bought a birthday present for a friend before we sat and had a nice close drink and an ice cream.
We’d had a really nice afternoon.
A year ago today
Max and I went to Upton Country Park, and then I came home and took photos of bees in the garden.
