Have just spent a few days staying with Sue and David in Whitstable.  Sue is a very good friend and I’ve known her since we went to ballet classes when we were students.

We visited the new Gallery in Hastings which was very impressive. It has been quite controversial as it cost a lot and the fishermen don’t like it being on their beach. But I’m sure it must bring extra visitors to Hastings, especially out of season. We also visited the RHS garden at Wisley.  I have been wanting to visit Wisley  before the membership, that my sister had bought me, ran out. It was beautiful, especially as the weather was glorious. It is still March but was like mid Summer.

There were lots of Helebores blooming but none were quite as beautiful as the ones we have at home and that I have painted. I just wish they’d keep their heads up as it’s difficult to see all the lovely markings!
