Garden flowers and bugs from Stoke-on-Trent


The family went to Stoke-on-Trent to spent the last weekend. We stayed at the house of one of my wife's best friends in university days. They've since moved to their new house just opposite from the last one we've visited a few years back.

I was attracted to the hydrangeas in her garden. There were roses, too, of my favourite colour (yellow and orange tip) and even flowers from pakchoi (petsay to us Filipinos). I am rubbish at gardening so I indulge on my admiration of flowers by taking photos instead. And I couldn't let this opportunity pass.

Day out in Rutland Water Park


One bright and breezy Sunday, our family joined other family friends for a picnic day out in Rutland Water Park. It was our second visit to the park in two years. The first visit was nothing to write about as it was a wet April day to do a picnic.

Rutland Water Park is one of the bigger water parks owned by Anglian Water. Set in 4200 acres of open countryside, it is the central rural attraction in England's smallest county of Rutland and offers activities for all the family. It is a 25-minute drive from Peterborough.
