Doddington Gardens Kent.

Twelve of us set off from Hollingbourne in convoy, so as to qualify for a discounted group admisssion.
we arrived in bright sunshine in stark contrast to a very wet start to the day.

 As we approached the house the path opened up into a lawned area where people sat picnicking whilst listening to live jazz music.
 Surrounding this grassed area were numerous stalls selling various wares - from fruit liqueurs, flowers, butchery, crepes, cheese to paintings.  Quite a few of us were tempted to part with our money.
Away from the popular events there were quiet corners to contemplate the beauty of the gardens.
After exploring we all met up in the tearoom where most of us indulged in a cream tea, or at the very least, tea and cake.  An afternoon enjoyed by all.
