Leonardslee at Last!
Leonardslee in the azalea/rhodedendron season is like paradise - see Pen's blog and the Captains for the photos. And its so sad that its new buyer - a man so important that his name is not even being allowed into the public arena - is not going to welcome us, the public, there any more.
You could spend days there, but we just did the Azalea and lake walks - and saw the wallabies. The air smelt of honeysuckle and there were duckling and goslings everywhere - and baby wallabies.
We lunched at the George and Dragon - salads all round - and then on to Warnham where Captain B photographed some damsel flies pairing up. It quite put me in mind of our student days - the days of our romantic courtship when Captain B used to flutter round in his shimmering Uni scarf and dazzle me.
Nute arrived this evening. We had a chili beef dinner, followed by Anne's apple concrete and fresh pineapple and ice-cream.
