May Vlog Part 3

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends,

Sharing with you the last vlog of May 2019.

It has been a very busy month and this past week Rick and I went on a mini break to Harrogate.

We visited Harlow Carr which is run by the Royal Horticultural Society and of course a trip to Art from the Heart which is a must when in Harrogate.

We stayed at the Magestic Hotel which was beautiful but being renovated too.
We went into Betty's for lunch and had a Fat Rascal, naughty but so nice.
The weather was kind to us too.

Here is Rick at the front of the Hotel.


The following 2 photographs are from the lounge, the murals were fabulous.



I love blue poppies and this was just a couple of the ones we saw at Harlow Carr.
There is some footage of the gardens in the vlog.

See you Saturday!
