Tulips, Bank Holidays etc.
This is here for no other reason than I like tuplips. They don't last all that long, and the tall ones are vunerable to the wind, but I love the way they open and show off their interiors!
We had a lovely Bank Holiday surprise when my daughter and son-in-law arrived for a cup of tea and a biscuit or two! They were out "for a drive" following a book of "Afternoon Drives" published, I would think, in about the 1930's. Thad had enormous fun trying to follow the instructions (no map, of course) along roads that had changed. The M6 has rather spoiled our country, cutting it in half, but there are still some lovely places around.
The weather was lovely, sun nearly all the time, so all in all we had a very good Easter holiday! Not forgetting, of course, the real reason for Easter - I went to a church I used to attend, (mainly because my present church has Victorian pews which make my 21st century back and legs agonising ) and I had a really good sing there and felt very thankful to the entire Holy Trinity
I do hope you all had a good time too, and that I am not making you envious! ;)
