Tulips three ways

Nothing says Spring like tulips in the courtyard! Here they are on a bright sunny day.

    

 I love the light shining through.

   
 
But I also love them at twilight. The pale pinks and white really glow in the evening.

   

 And lastly, with the solar lights. 

 
It’s often the simple things that give the greatest joy.

A Nice Walk

Such is our life in Norfolk that when we need to buy more coffee we end up on a 10mi walk. From Blakeney up to Wiveton down, the Art Cafe for a scone, and the Grey Seal Roastery for our actual coffee purchase!  

  

   

 

Bonzo enjoyed it too.  

Of course nothing would do but to cross the ford and make our way through the wild flower and spring bulb strewn lanes of Wiveton and into Cley for a sneak peak at the new location for Artemis Antiques and Coffee Shop. (Full report to follow)

   

     

Then we finished off through Cley Marsh on the Coast Path homewards.  Time for a nap I think.

Salt Glass Studios

This winter, while on a walk around Burnham Thorpe (home of Admiral Nelson), we discovered Salt Glass Studios. We found the combinations of glassworks and print a beautiful and intriguing combination. We also found out that they do glassworks classes from £20 upwards. 

So, having visitors during some unpleasant weather, we decided to have a go at blowing your own glass spheres. Now this sounded like something I should not be allowed to do but they assured me it was for ages 5 and over so I felt a bit better. 

 

 

  

  

Max Lamb and Dr. Fiona Wilkes run the studio and courses while working on other large projects, including one recently with the Wellcome Trust. They were very friendly, knowledgable, approachable, and patient

 

We had a great time and got a beautiful reminder of the experience to take home with us.
