There were refreshments as we began the evening ... and Dougal was very well behaved throughout. He is very good in crowds and with other dogs. One of his new friends is a small red setter ... a beautiful young dog.
It has been hard on the roses ... rain marked and flattened ... although from a distance the rose gardens still have colour.
And thinking of treats ... the doughnut peaches are back! It is a short season ... but they are just gorgeous. Beautiful to look at and even better to eat!
