Well, despite the dullness of the day (it brightened up nicely later) I headed off for a walk at Petworth.
This used to be the diary and was then converted to house the fire engine!!
Ponders and Fido ready for action!!
and the, in celebration of National Cream Tea Day (which Petworth cafe seemed unaware of) an excellent scone with all the 'bits'. Back to normality in terms of having spread instead of jam and cream from tomorrow onwards. But it was excellent.
Then off for a wander..
Small Heath butterfly
Down on the lake, dozens of Greyland and Canada Geese
And a few Mallards.. now going into eclipse..
and a Ponders & Fido enjoying the peace and quiet..
I sat on a seat here for a while; reading and just enjoying the stillness and warmth..
The Geese all came over to 'my' side of the lake
then a slow wander back..
Lovely to be back again....
