Last week we visited Missenden Abbey again. I had the chance to wander in the grounds even though it was a dank and dull day. It seemed to rain whenever I was free to wander, but I specifically wanted to take a photo of these flowers. Rudbeckia, otherwise known as Black Eyed Susans and more,… Read More Sampler
Yesterday we visited Salisbury. We have great affection for the city as DH lived there for a while, and his parents were residents for many years.
