Gardens and a concert

On Wednesday I went with a friend to Hilliers Arboretum mostly to see the rhododendrons and also to take advantage of the fine weather. We had a lovely walk round the woods, and down by the pond. As well as the flowers there is some great art on display at the moment and I've placed some pictures of the day in this gallery. I also took out an annual membership since that also gives entry into Kew Gardens and I was planning on visiting there later this year.

On Friday night I went to see 10cc in concert at the Anvil in Basingstoke. I'm a bit of an ignoramus when it comes to music, so I wouldn't have been able to name any of their songs before the evening. However I did recognise a few, particularly towards the end, although I never knew the song about cricket was called 'Dreadlock Holiday' :-) It was an enjoyable concert since the group (only one of the originals but all good musicians) really took pleasure in the performance.

Astonishingly we've got fine weather for the Bank Holiday weekend, so I'm spending most of my time down the allotment.
