More pretty pictures from the holiday weekend.
On the Saturday N and I visited the Weaver's Cottage before it closed for the winter (it is now closed and doesn't re-open till April).
We saw the 200 year old loom in operation, I admired the gorgeous colours of the wool on the shelves, N had a go on a tiny loom (plus there is also a larger loom that visitors can operate under supervison).
The garden isn't huge but is very pretty. I particularly liked all the various carved stone items that were dotted around and the potted pelargoniums.
Before leaving we bought a little sheep in the gift shop for N to add to his collection.
I have spent the last three Sunday afternoons cutting back the hedge (it's still not quite finished, sigh). Last Sunday there was a newcomer to the garden who was keeping me company. He was very friendly. I think I did uncover quite a few insects for him including a ladybird - I had gone inside to get my camera to photograph a ladybird I'd found but when I can back outside the ladybird had disappeared...
