This morning I made a little more progress on weeding the back drive.
The new lilies have begun to flower.
Matthew arrived with Poppy just before lunch. Our granddaughter was quickly into all the familiar toys, playing with her Dad and Grannie,
but a little more sceptical about Grandpa\s face extension.
She certainly recognises pictures of herself, but whether or not she links them with the camera is a moot point.
Norman’s parrot had to be released from his perch suspended from the ceiling.
This afternoon Becky took her niece on an owl hunt in the garden. This involved lots of pointing and exclamations from Poppy and expressions of amazement from Becky.
Poppy was particularly enamoured of the blue-bespectacled bird alongside the Heligan Path.
This evening we all dined at Lal Quilla, where the food and service was as excellent as ever, and Poppy was a delight, My main choice was lamb Ceylon, with which I enjoyed a share of special fried rice, onion bhaji, and paratha. The ladies drank diet Coke, the gentlemen, Kingfisher, and Poppy. water.
Mat and Poppy returned home to Upper Dicker and the rest of us came back to Downton.
