On Friday my daughter and I took a lovely country drive to Helmingham Hall. They were opening there gardens in aid of The Blossom appeal, which is fundraising for a new breast care unit at Ipswich hospital. It was a very good day for a wander round these wonderful gardens as it was not too hot or windy and I took several pictures. (I must learn how to post pictures here.) A favourite with me and also my mother was the magnificent sweetpea walk with them growing over the whole walk, breathing in was a joy as the perfume was overwhelming. After walking round the vegetable and rose gardens, and photographing the topiary we had a quiche lunch in the cafe and then explored the sunken garden. An icecream, I had Eton Mess and Roast Coffee (you can't mix them my daughter said) but I did, and together they ended a perfect visit. How I love it that now I can spend more time with my daughter doing things we both like.
Have a lovely weekend, Come On England. I'm saving a Magnum Icecream to have when we win!!!!! hugs to all from Poppy and Val xx
