Today it is my birthday, and my lovely husband had booked us a table for lunch at Rick Stein's fish restaurant in Winchester, where we had a delicious meal. We had intended staying in town until it got dark, so we could see the Light Festival. However, as it was so blustery and chilly we photographed one of the features (these giant
triffids tulips) against the blue sky, and decided to return home in daylight.Martin had also baked me a cake which we ate while watching David Attenborough 's splendid "Green Planet" programme. A necessarily low key, but enjoyable birthday.
Martin has to go to Cambridge tomorrow to help his sister make the funeral arrangements for their other sister who died last week.
