I love the colour of these rudbeckias (I think that's what they are) and I love the patterns the strong sunlight was making on the lawn thro the trees. Our first stop was to have some lunch in one of the gardens and, as luck would have it we bumped into two very dear friends of mine. The fountain is in the back garden of the house where we had lunch.
By the way, do you know? Ever since I saw the first Harry Potter film I always expect photos of people to move!!!! How mad is that?
In case the photo below won't enlarge I can tell you that the plaque says "One who plants a garden plants happiness". It's in the garden at the top of this entry which belongs to a lovely gentleman who I believe is in his 90's!
We rounded the day off with a chinese meal at our house with 4 friends. We had a great evening but unfortunately I had a bad night brought on by the chinese I think. 3 o'clock in the morning saw me sitting in the conservatory with indigestion and trying to cool off. DH took pity on me and made me a peppermint tea. Looks like no more Chinese meals for me, this isn't the first time I've had a problem.
