Yesterday was a mixed sort of a day. There were upsets and frustrations over family matters that cast a bit of a cloud over the first part of the day, but as always my wonderful circle of friends managed to turn that around!
The afternoon was spent wandering around the wonderful Japanese farden pictured above. The rain was falling quite heavily, but umbrellas are marvellous inventions, and it anything, the rain freshened everything and made it all the more beautiful. The company of good friends always makes it a sunny day whatever the weather, and this outing was no exception. The ‘Heavenly Tea’ also helped!
After the amble round the garden however, the adternoon took a rather surreal turn. We were there for a concert entitled ‘Natures Heart’ and while I was not sure what to expect, it can be safely said that it was nothing like I imagined! I am sure that many there enjoyed the adternoon’s ‘entertainment’ but it was not to my taste, nor that of my friends, so after the first half (1 hour) we escaped into the garden for the half hour break, then left before the second hour began.
The most enjoyable part of the whole day though was the friendship we shared, so despite the weather, and the ‘music’ I believe a good time was had by all!
