The steps and narrow pathways were slippery and I had the place to myself. Duck weed has covered the surface of the water since my last visit. It's a rather magical place.
I disturbed a little family of ducks.
It is no surprise that this place provides an inspiration for art.
I had a happy wander around the studio.
At 4 o'clock it was time for afternoon tea, sandwiches, quiche and dainty, fancy buns. How English and how tasty! No need to worry about the weather in such good company. We all had a lovely time.
