Inspiration diverse

One really important aspect of being away on holiday is the inspiration one gets. For some years now we have been visiting Scampston Walled garden in Yorkshire near Malton. It is a beautiful place which has given us ideas and encouragement  to improve our own plot. It was designed by the Dutchman Piet Oudolf.
Although a wet day the gardens were magnificent as ever.
We always find new things and fresh ideas...
Holiday time too is a time to catch up on reading.Term time often leaves me too tired to read much.The novel depicted below ( I am about to finish) has given me much pleasure this holiday-
Good historical research combined with adventures and fasinating insights to the time make these novels well worth a read. Go on give them a go you won't regret it...
Finally a beer I discovered just prior to the hols.A unique taste with a hint of corriander- well worth trying on these summer evenings rain or shine!


  1. Ah, pour me a Blue Moon, please . . . I'd love to sit back and drink one just now.

    Glad that you had a good holiday trip. Enjoy your refreshment, sir.

  2. Blue Moon also makes a nice wheat (weizen) beer that I enjoy.
