I’ve had a really good day, especially this morning. One of our local big houses, Hunmanby Grange, opened its lovely gardens to the public, and Richard and I went to look round. I always love the chance to admire other people’s gardens, and the Grange’s stately trees, colourful flower-beds, winding paths, and wide lawns were all looking their best on this gorgeous June day.
But the gardens are only part of Hunmanby Grange’s claim to fame, and only part of the attraction that draws visitors to the house and grounds. They run a flourishing and very interesting business there. I’ll tell you all about it…but not right now. It’s late, and I’m on the point of falling asleep in front of my computer.
I’ll give you a hint, in the form of one of my favourite Czech proverbs – OK, I confess it’s the only Czech proverb I know, but it’s a good one.
“A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure.”
And so to bed…tune in tomorrow, everyone!
