"To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour."

From "Auguries of Innocence"

A Walk around Stratford and Autumn Harvest at the Gardens

Family chauffeuring last Friday meant I had a couple of hours in Stratford-upon-Avon last Friday. I had hoped to visit Shakespeare's New Place but at the last minute B had decided to accompany us so in the end we just wandered round the town centre where there is always something to see.

Shakespeare's Birthplace - If you want to read about my visit here a couple of years ago please see here

The Jester Statue

The American War Fountain

Timothy has spotted a pub!

The RSC - a sight of this theatre always brings back happy memories of visits to see plays there and at The Courtyard Theatre nearby.

Timothy and the Swan Fountain

I wish now I had bought one of these lanterns.

I've never seen this museum before - looks worth a visit

and Timothy agreed.

On Sunday afternoon we went along to Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens where they had an Autumn Harvest event.
