Blue Snow!

T Minus 93

As the blooms begin to fade beneath the Ceanothus there is a deluge of blossom giving the appearance of a light dusting of blue snow. The show has been spectacular but is coming to an end as time marches on.20140521-072015-26415517.jpg

The Blue Pumpkin

We had a fabulous Ice Cream ‘breakfast’ in this restaurant.

Notice the script, which is in Khmer the language of Cambodia. The Khmer language has an unusual Script which is very different to ours in the West but also different to other surrounding countries.

Today is a Bank Holiday in the UK and so with the weather looking good we headed of with Anita’s family to Gray’s Court a National Trust property near Henley on Thames. Some fabulous gardens built among the ruins of a castle and a fabulous bluebell wood. We had a great time.
