{May Bank holiday weekend}

Last weekend I spent at my cousins seeing some fantastic stuff.
First we spent the day at Knole, a beautiful Jacobean manor famed for being the home of poet, gardener, novelist, biographer and journalist Vita Sackville-West (and once lover of Virginia Woolf).

The next day we went to lovely Constable Country where we rented a rowboat and travelled down the river, singing our hearts out and enjoying the fabulous day!


We started off from near Le Talbooth...

 We went all the way to Flatford Mill (where Constable famously painted the Haywain--for pics of Flatford, see an earlier post) and then back again... and then we walked into Dedham:

Simply, a fab fab weekend!
