A Pleasant Afternoon

33 comments


Have just spent a very pleasant afternoon visiting The Old Gunner and his wife Joy. He only lives a few miles from me, and this is the second time we have met. The first time was at my place. They are a lovely couple and it felt like we had known each other for years. We sat on the patio at the top of the garden with tea and scones, and chatted about our gardens, plants and of course the GOY site. It was great. This site has a lot to answer for…… but it has brought me two new friends, so thanks GOY.
