Text Appearing Before Image:
imes, byconsent, we younger fry sat beneath the piano, whichwas of an old square pattern, and worked the pedalsfor my aunt, in order that her industry might be un-divided on the keys. It is amazing what a varietywe could cast upon the waltz, now giving it a muffled ISJi, CHIMNEY-POT PAPERS sound, and presently offering the dancers a prolongedroaring. Midway in the evening, when the atrocities ofdinner were but mildly remembered, ice-cream wasbrought in. It was not hard as at dinner, but hadsettled to a delicious softness, and could be mushedupon a spoon. Then while the party again proceeded,and my aunt resumed her waltz, we were despatchedupstairs. On the bed lay our stockings, still tied with string,that had been stuffed with presents in the dawn. Butthe morning had now sunk into immeasurable dis-tance and seemed as remote as Job himself. And allthrough the evening, as we lay abed and listened tothe droning piano below, we felt a spiritual hoUow-ness because the great day had passed.

Gooderstone Water Gardens 12-07-2009

Billy Knights, a retired farmer began designing and creating the Water Gardens in 1970 in his 70th year. The site was a damp meadow which became too wet for cattle to graze. Mr Knights’ son jokingly suggested he should have a water garden, which prompted him to draw out plans (on the back of a piece of wallpaper) and he soon had machines digging out the ponds and waterways. He worked on his garden with love and enthusiasm until he died aged 93. For over 20 years the gardens had been open to the public.

Both Billy and his wife Florence loved their gardens and sharing them with others. With this in mind and as a tribute to her parents Coral Hoyos began restoration in April 2002. Having been unattended and closed for five years, the Gardens had become quite derelict. However they were re-opened again in June 2003, with a new car park, refurbished tea-room / gallery, a toilet for disabled people and an 8 acre nature trail. There has since been the addition of a bird hide and a new plant sales area, bamboo grove, scented arbour and rustic roundhouse.

To help you find your way round, the bridges are numbered and when you have walked enough rest on one of the many benches provided, or perhaps visit the tearoom in the south-east corner where you can enjoy a relaxing cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee, soft drinks, ice-creams and delicious home made cakes.

This was my first ever sighting of a Kingfisher. It was well worth the wait! They are alot smaller than I imagined.
