Walks and wonders

What a glorious weekend we’ve been having! The sun has finally come out and it seems as if spring has finally sprung! I made the most of the good weather with an early morning walk around Richmond Park with three of my WI members. We meet outside the beautiful Pembroke Lodge before setting off for a one-hour stroll around Sidmouth Wood and Pen Ponds, before climbing up King Henry’s Mound to admire the view – you can see all the way to St Pauls on a clear day.

Yesterday was an equally successful day. On my way into town I passed a skip where some beautiful pieces of furniture were being thrown away. I couldn’t lug it all home but did manage to salvage some bits and pieces – like these handles.

I’ve been wanting to get some like this for ages so am very excited, not just about finding them but also by the fact that they were free! It seems there are treasures to be found everywhere, you just need to take the time out to stop and look.
