I have just spent a couple of days in Somerset, was very blessed with lovely weather, had a morning in Wells, and the cathedral, it is such a beautiful building.

The scissor arches are amazing, well worth a visit. The altar frontal are displayed round the walls some amazing work,designed by Jane Lemon and Maurice Strike.

I really loved this

A boat
Home of a fish a man
that once rode a stormy sea
and from which nets were cast on the
the right side
now lies

Broken and holed

Empty and silent

The shell of a past
from which
on white steps,
life went forth

it was made by Anna Sikorska

After Lurch in a great pub in Mells we visited the walled garden, what an unexpected delight, it used to belong to the rectory and is medieval, a jumble of wonderful cottage garden plants.

of course I came home with some plants, unfortunately not the beautiful "Black Lace Elder"

I also went to Stour Head and walked round the lake, very grand but prefer the charm of the walled garden, where you could eat a cream tea sitting on a bale of hay covered with a rug under an old apple tree with a rose climbing through it, just perfect in the afternoon sun.
