Back home

We arrived at Gatwick yesterday and spent the night in a delightful hotel in deepest Sussex. Glorious sunshine this morning, so we visited the nearest National Trust property, Wakehurst Place, which was absolutely wonderful and deserved much more than the couple of hours we gave it. It’s the ‘country cousin’ of Kew Gardens, with valleys, lakes, flowers, even in mid-winter. Highly recommended.

Now, children, today we’re going to paint a tree. What colour are trees?
