This week had just whizzed by - we have been quite busy but managed to get out too. I had a few meetings to attend here last week as our approval was required for work to be carried out.
Last Saturday I was in Harrogate at Art From the Heart for a brilliant workshop taught by Tracy Scott who creates the most fabulous art journals. I went with two lovely friends and we had a great time, got messy, chatted a lot, bought some goodies and made a great journal spread!
On Sunday I used some of the leftovers plus some bits of my own to make this small page too.I have also been using up some more leftovers but not here!
On Friday on our way shopping we stopped off at Styall Mill. Last time we went the gardens were shut so it was a lovely surprise to see that since we last visited way back last year the greenhouses have been completed and the whole area has been opened up.
This greenhouse was used to grow exotic plants and vines for the owner of the mill and his family, it has been a wreck for years and was cordoned off. Now you can walk through a gate to a shop and the potting shed has been opened up too!
Vines have been planted and I will show their progress as we visit here quite regularly.
Lots of signs of new growth outside!
The camellia looked beautiful….from all angles
This next area is fenced offNearing the end to our walk
I loved seeing these early tulips!
Now, at this point we called in to the cafe…but I had put my phone away so that I could pay…and then NEEDED my coffee so much I forgot to take a photo!!!
This was on our way back to the car park...
…and this is right next to the car park
For those that saw this photo last week..
…yes we did go to the cinema, although we do like that Football Museum too - still lots to see in there too as we usually go with our grandchildren who tend to go for the interactive displays!
Now, I know you will want to know what we we went to see - well as one day was a Silver Screen the film was a slightly older one -
The other film was 'Logan'an X-Men movie - starring Hugh Jackman - need I say more??
We shall be packing today for a little trip to York but I will try to do better than last week - I am sure I missed some of you!
Thanks for looking, Chris
