Ruby days

This weekend marks our fortieth wedding anniversary and we have celebrated by  visiting some beautiful places. Yesterday we went to RHS Wisley, where we were treated to a feast of orchids in the glasshouse, and glorious magnolias in the woodland gardens. So much more besides, it will require another visit before too long.

Today we found Leith Hill Place, the childhood home of Ralph Vaughan Williams, with an unspoilt atmosphere, live piano music and the smell (and taste) of fresh baking. The views were never ending at this magical place.

By contrast the palatial Polesden Lacey was so ostentatious it felt almost over the top, but still had some amazing sights.

A special weekend to mark four happy decades! Thank you Steve xxxx

  1. Congratulations to you both. Forty years is a wonderful achievement. And yet another thing we have in common: ours will be 40 years this year too. ❤
