I've had a good restful weekend. Today I visited Sheffield Park, where I went last June to climb the giant redwoods and admire the rhododendrons. I sometimes like visiting parks/gardens off season, and today instead of sunshine it was super windy, as you can probably see. We found a part of the gardens we hadn't been to before where there is a restored cricket ground and new Pavilion. Apparently the cricket ground was put there by Lord Sheffield in 1845 and used up until World War One at which point it was used as a planting area for wheat. It was resurrected after the War until World War Two when it was occupied by Canadian soldiers and has been out of use until the last couple of years. I like learning these small and largely irrelevant pieces of history. After a couple of hours walking we went to have some hot spiced apple drink (so good, wish I had a recipe)and carrot cake before coming home where I made some raisin cupcakes. Winter always makes me want to hibernate so I like these calm weekends, particularly since we are moving in a couple of weeks so calm will be hard to find for a while. How was your weekend?
