Of history, patience and flowers
On my last trip to Sussex, I visited the ancient village of Ditchling with my sister and her husband.
We started off with the historic church dating back to the 1100s.
My eye was drawn to this old cross in the graveyard.
(You can see my sister in the background patiently waiting for us to finish taking photos.)
The graveyard had a magnificent magnolia tree
With fuzzy buds about to burst into bloom.
From the church, you get a good view of the timbered old manor house
That Henry VIII gave to Anne of Cleves.
No village is complete
Without its bright red letter box …
And no English spring complete
Without its gardens full of daffodils.
