We - Captain Butterfly, Bea, Jackie, Linda and I - drove off in pouring rain yesterday for our day out in Philip Jackson's lovely garden, fearing it was going to be rained off. However, the sun came out as we drove through the May countryside, and we had a great day, including excellent hot dogs (proper sausages), home made cake and tea, and a tour of the garden and its sculptures conducted by Philip Jackson himself!

Today the family is coming over for lunch. Not sure how many, but I have kept it flexible, foodwise, chicken salad followed by: a lemon drizzle cake bought from the home-made cake stall, ice-cream made by Captain Butterfly's own fair hands, and an Eton Mess.
