Five jolly souls met for a walk from Temple Newsam on 20th May. The song (there always is one) "Just a walking in the rain" getting soaking wet was very apt. But, did it stop us? No! The rhododendrons round Temple Newsome were beautiful, even though they'd had a battering with wind and rain, they were still a sight to see.
We had lunch in the Ground's Greenhouse among the geraniums and various other plants, to shelter from the rain which was now torrential.
The decision was made to cut the walk short and head for the coffee shop before returning home. Good day with chums.
