What a wonderful dayout! We wandered through the picturesque village of Hemingford Grey and then discovered the beautiful gardens of 'The Manor' where we even had time to stop and smell the roses! We sat down to share our scrumptious picnic and the clouds opened..... but not to be discouraged, we ate on through the rain eventually picking up our table and relocating to beneath a handy tree. The chatter and laughter continued unabated. Then the sun returned and after a little sketching and quite a lot of photography it was time for our tour of the house. An ancient house with a fascinating history and glimpses into the novels of Lucy Boston who lived there last century. Her patchwork Quilts were shown to us, each with it's own story. We had such a lovely day that we all agreed we must do it again next year.
