Hinton Ampner

The August Bank Holiday in the UK always seems to me to be the last day of summer (even if we might get an Indian Summer) - the next Bank Holiday will be in December. So after a certain amount of hard work over the weekend (more about that tomorrow) we went on a little excursion out into Hampshire.

Although I have lived in the area for many years now I have never gone Hinton Ampner so suggested it as our destination. We set off late morning when it was still dull and slightly drizzly, by the time we got there there was plenty of blue in the sky and the sun was making a welcome appearance. We parked and locked our transport (which deserves a post all of its own) and headed of to snaffle sandwiches and tea.

We had a nice amble through the gardens and I pottered about taking snaps of bits of the garden - various statues and ornaments and admired the topiary.
Lots of potential for shape play!

A long summer

It has been over 2 months since my last post. A number of reasons were involved, most of them resulted in me being very tired. And then a bit emotional. I'm not going to explain or apologise (reminding me of my college friend American mother's saying - "Never complain, never explain" - or something approximating it). Instead I will concentrate on saying a big thank you to the many people who have been a shoulder to cry on, given their support or just understood.

More recently I have picked myself up and have got back into the studio and also out and about. Which means I have plenty to retrospectively blog about. A few more blog posts this month - catch up with you tomorrow.
