The Wanderer Returns

Hellooooooo! I'm back to annoy you all having spent the last week or so nosing around in the beautiful Wye Valley. To ease myself back in gently I'm sharing a couple of quotes that caught my eye whilst I was away. The photo is of a piece of graffiti that charmed me on the local church door. I can only imagine that the individual behind this carving was not terribly popular when their handiwork was first discovered in 1532!

A bit betwixt and between

 Another visit to one of my favourite haunts....Nymans Gardens [NT] which is near here and perfect if you've only got a couple of hours ...
