In Exbury Gardens


Massive Wisteria display

Out for dinner

A relaxing start. Lyn Lusi’s daughter is staying with us. Great catching up with her, and hearing the latest from HEAL Africa and our friends in Goma.

Drove to New Forest area for a delightful lunch in their Tea Gardens. Then we entered the most beautiful Rhododendron, Azalea an Camelia Garden that we have ever seen. Exbury Gardens are privately run 200 acres and have just celebrated their centenary by planting 100,000 extra spring bulbs. There were carpets of blue bells, daffodils and jonquils everywhere. We could rave for many paragraphs - just believe us when we say it was absolutely FABULOUS and breathtaking and we strolled for hours stopping and admiring all the flower bushes. One day, you might like to see our extensive LIBRARY of photos!

Then all home for another cup of tea with the family. An Australian family (from Brisbane) - friends of Nadine’s brother, who came to compete in the London Marathon, stayed for another cup of tea, and then we all had to rush out for a Dinner booking back to the New Forest area to a delightful village country pub, one of their favourites. It was a most enjoyable dinner and lots of fun. Home late, and had a cup of tea before bed.

What a wonderful, great day.
