The house was lovely and the gardens were magnificent.
And, despite all the rain we have had recently, it was superb weather from start to finish.
So, thank you to Pat Hatfield for organising it. Once again you chose the right day.
Numbers were down a little on our previous trips, possibly because of the recent lousy weather and possibly because it took place later than usual, October rather than September. But the ones who did go all had a great day out.
I attach some photos of the day:

There were more than a hundred different varieties of dahlia in the gardens. Here is just one of them
