Meanwhile, DH and I enjoyed a few days away a couple of weeks ago at Barnard Castle, home to Richard III. On the way we stopped off at Dalemain House near Penrith in Cumbria. An unexpectedly quirky mix of architectural styles, the house is really interesting. But the gardens are delightful. Famous for the blue poppy grown there in abundance, it is a true plantsman's haven. It was a bit too early for the blue poppy display - only one was in bloom.

Our trip was to celebrate our birthdays both of which fall in May and our wedding anniversary.
I made this bookmark for DH as a little anniversary gift,
Enjoy some slow stitching!
