I have to say it felt like I was in an episode of Mr Benn!
We went down some steps ....
Into the grotto
Where the river god waited for us in the cool depths
Among thousands of shells and fossils
A truly fantastic place on a very, very hot day! If you ever get the chance to visit, go!
In the gardens there was singing and ballet and some beautiful stalls...
Cute little penguins and guinea pigs made by Victoria (sadly no link to post here)
This beautiful stall from Betty Brixham full of quirky prints on a super display.
Sadly P and I had to go home at about half past three as we could stand the heat no longer, but we did leave Eric behind!
