During our recent trip to York in the UK, we stayed at Middlethorpe Hall & Spa for two nights. It really was the loveliest hotel I have stayed in with wonderful service and the most beautiful gardens. The picture above shows the lovely courtyard outside our rooms.
The Hall was built in 1699 and was once the home of the famous diarist, Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. Our rooms were delightfully roomy and comfortable and had a lovely historical atmosphere.

A lovely place to rest and relax.
Lots of lavender and bees.
In case you didn’t know, I have two short stories in a new paranormal anthology called Whispers of the Past, edited by Kaye Lynne Booth. It should be available by the end of the month and one of my short stories is called The Last of the Lavender.
This tree is enormous.
