Japan and home again

Yesterday I spent a lovely afternoon in Japan, then got home in time for tea. 

Peace and quiet.

This is the lovely Japanese Meditation Gardens which are just down the road from where I live.  It seems rather odd to find this little gem tucked away in a Nottinghamshire village.  

There wasn't a soul around, so I just sat and listened to the bird song.  

A rare treat to just sit and think and do nothing, before heading home to the usual noise and demands of everyday life. 

Ahhhhhh, so relaxed. 

P.S  Thanks for all the messages left on the last post, in fact on all the posts.  I don't always have time to reply, but I read them all and I am very touched that people take time to comment. 


  1. What a wonderful place! I can feel the peace from the photographs.

    We've never visited the Japanese Gardens here in Cornwall, but I think we should go & check them out on a nice day soon!

    Sorry about your duck, life can be cruel at times.
