Wedding Anniversary

Today is our 41st Wedding Anniversary. To celebrate I bought Diane a couple of boxes of DVDs of BBC plays featuring Judi Dench and Helen Mirren, and she bought me a biography of Charles Wesley. Shows what serious people we are. Then this afternoon we went for a walk in the New Forest. We went to Rhinefield and followed the Tall Trees Trail. Here are some of the tallest trees in the forest including Douglas Firs, oaks, beeches, silver birch, cedars and redwoods over 100 feet high. The trees date from about 200 years ago, though there is an arboretum planted about 50 years ago with less mature specimens.

Summer has arrived and temperatures are in the eighties, so the shade of the trees was very welcome. How fortunate we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world!
