|after breakfast (which consisted of scrambled eggs and excellent coffee for me and a full english variety for himself) we trotted off to the Beth Chatto gardens in Elmstead Market near Colchester; I love visiting other people's gardens, not just to get inspired (f.e. lots if different succulents in lots of different pots) I can relax a lot more than in my own garden as I don't have to be worried about all the work involved. Plus there's a fine reward at the end of it all: tea and something sweet, in my case a gluten free scone followed by a visit to the shop where we tend to spend more than we should. I'm considering dedicating an entire post to all the stuff that we have bought on this trip, although it might prove too embarrassing, in which case I won't.|
We arrived at our first B&B in Streetly in time for yet another walk before dinner, this time along a Roman road, the most one can say about it is that the Romans sure knew how to draw a straight line, the views fortunately were very fine indeed. I forgot to take photo's so you'll just have to take my word for it.
