Today we took a trip up to Cromford to whet our appetites for the holiday next week. Sophie wanted to have a look at the studio space and the lie of the land. The sun was shining when we arrived. The house faces South and it's a real sun trap outside the lounge (which we noted had beautiful new chairs!) and we had a nice cup of coffee and admired the garden.
Coffee break in the sun.
June garden, looking good.
Outside the studios the dog roses were in bloom and looking good enough to paint! we looked up past the old apple trees to the wild flower meadow beyond and thought...Yes, this'll do nicely!
