" A Treat At Bolesworth Castle..."



Here's me at Bolesworth Castle last week.
I was lucky enough to be included in "Zoo", the anthology of 23 shortlisted short stories from The High Sheriff's Cheshire Prize for Literature, 2009.
Each of us was presented with a book by the Sheriff, Diana Barbour ( in centre of snap) who welcomed us into her fabulous castle. This is, in fact, a gorgeous home...a mix of lovely old family pieces, fabrics, carpets....set comfortably with stunning contemporary paintings...and the gardens too were at their lush June best.....( although we had no chance to explore) .... but the rhododendrons ( purple, violet, lavendar ones) fair took my breath away!!
This visit was a treat.
