    Is this a recent photo? Just doesn’t seem fair you get to visit again and again, while I’ve only been once. I think I need a home away from home in England. Or, maybe I could find a long-lost cousin:^) I’m planning a 2018 trip to East Anglia, but goodness, that seems an awful long time away.

      It’s a lament, actually. I had the vague intention to drive down this Sunday and – like a complete plank – forgot all about it until it would have been really pushing things to get there before it closed.

      This is from a couple of years ago. If it makes you feel any better, last time I went it rained so long and hard we had to leave after a brief run round to see how stunningly gorgeous everything was.

      You know all too well that when you visit a place like Wollerton, you end up with too many pictures to share all at once. I eek mine out!

    I loved your photos of hollyhocks. When we moved to our present home three years ago, I was thrilled to find hollyhocks coming up. Last year, due to a drought, they dried up. The buds were on the stalks, but they shriveled up. This year they were glorious. I loved them because my grandmother always had them growing beside her mailbox.

    Hollyhocks! And in such a setting! I love hollyhocks, and I take your post as a good omen for my day — thank you. I thank you also for the laugh: “like a complete plank”? Oh, the vocabulary you’re teaching me!
