Very well tended gardens - all done by volunteers.
It was the house of Benjamin Disraeli - good beer available in the tea room!

Thames cable car - the flight

As with the British Airways London Eye, Emirates Airline call the trip 'a flight'.

Thames Cable Car

On Monday we went on the Emirates cable car across the Thames.
Excellent - and only £3.60 with your Oyster card.
As you can see, the weather wasn't great as it was raining very slightly. The impressive thing was that there was a man leathering off the windows of each car before it started its next trip!

After leaving our hotel we came home via the RHS Malvern Spring Show.
The weather wasn't great but we were appropriately dressed so it was OK.
Here are some of the show gardens...

Westbury Court Garden 2

I forgot to mention that the garden is owned by the National Trust.
This is the Evergreen or Holm Oak which was planted around 1600.
I wonder how old these fungi are?
