I ask anyone reading this to spare a thought for the organisers of the Garden Show at Loseley Park. After rain on Friday, it also rained almost all today. Rather than three days, their enterprise only enjoyed one. I should also mention the open gardens at East Worldham which would have suffered today as well.
Needless to say, it was a pretty miserable day if you were unlucky enough to be outside. Of course I battled the elements to go to the shops first thing. I could have asked Mirinda to drive me except I just had to document the progress made by the Adventure Playground people.
As you can see from the above photograph, the walkway now has a handrail running both sides for the entire length. In the distance you can just make out the rope walkway that goes from the main fort structure to one of the outlying towers. Here it is a bit closer.
To the left of the photograph, at the top of the tower is a strange statue of a big bird. It could be an eagle or a seagull, I couldn’t get close enough to tell. I also have no idea if it’s made of wood, iron, resin or coconut shells. In short, the rain started in earnest as I stood there so the camera went away rapidly followed by me.
Back at home, Mirinda was having a lovely Skype with Fi, interrupted on occasion by Jason and his disc cleaning antics and Lauren in her pyjamas. Jason, it seems, managed to survive his epic walk along the pseudo Kokoda Trail.
The rest of the day was rubbish so we spent it indoors. I made an apple, pear and almond pie and some real custard to have for dessert (and make up for the horrible jelly from yesterday). Mirinda said it was lovely.
And the roast this week was chicken.
