Return to Westonbirt and a Gromit

Decided that finishing the fence could wait while the forecast rain held off, so we toddled up to Westonbirt. In the plant centre there, saw that this flower was very popular with the bees.
Then it was off into the sunshine and the trees. 
Bella enjoying some grazing. 
At the far corner of the site is where giant logs await the chainsaw sculptors at the Festival of the Tree (August Bank Holiday weekend).
After our circumnavigation of Silk Wood, we repaired back to the van for a cup of tea and a sandwich - and Su posed with Bella's bowl.
On the way out, stopped to take some pictures of Eldoradog - one of the 80 Gromits on display around the Bristol area for Gromit Unleashed, a fundraiser for the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity
Probably best not to ask what Su's up to …
This day a year ago, I found myself posing with an Olympic torch at Dick Willows the day after the opening ceremony
