One other event that kept me busy in the last week or so was the Haslemere Festival.  They're always having festivals, so not sure what this was for, but we much enjoyed it.

Several gardens opened up to the public at the weekend.  They were all lovely or course, but not (IMHO) remarkable.  Big, yes, but remarkable, not really.  I just took one photograph:

See what I mean?  Well, I'm sure it took a lot of hard work to achieve this effect.  And I know there are at least 3 gardeners working there.  But, I don't know, a big hedge, a couple of saplings, some beds and a couple of pots . . .  Still, the tea and cake was delicious!

More importantly, in the evening there was a concert on the Green.  Sadly, you can see from the garden pic above what the weather was like, so, although there were a few hardy (and totally bonkers) people on picnic blankets, it was a more of a pop in and out type of concert than a pop event.  I popped in for the disco which I enjoyed for some reason.

As my house overlooks the Green, I'm afraid I then listened to the rest of the concert from my armchair with the window open and watched the fireworks from there too.


  1. Ahhh, the Great British Washout.....you can't beat it!! LOL.

    I see what you mean about that garden....lots of potential, little delivery.

  2. There were 2 acres of garden too. Maybe they used up too much space for the pool and the store for the ride-on mower?

  3. Or maybe they wanted everyone to see that they had a pool?
