This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...
 
 
Enjoying - the first summer salad and the first BBQ of the year, in a warm conservatory no less!

Chimenea

Thrifting - at the fabulous Frome Vintage Bazaar, in the town's charity shops and at an impromptu Ladies Circle jumble sale in The Crown Hotel.
