Was on Granny duty most of last week - hard work as ever. Battleaxe feels really tired. The week before I had a trip to London - met old friend Diana, then Philosopher came up and we went to some exhibitions the day after. Weather has been fabulous - pretty flowers in the garden.

The next day we took her up to Beachy Head, which she always enjoys. I think she appreciates the space, and the silence... We had a slightly breezy picnic, and as Philosopher's hip is not good for walking right now, her and me went down the steepest possible slope and walked down to Eastbourne - met Philosopher down there with the car. The skylarks were singing their heads off - must have had nests on the ground near where we were walking.

|The Country Park - slightly misty|
Here are a few photos from our London trip. Just a random selection.

And finally, here are some photos from the garden. How vibrant the colours are. But it is so dry....
