On Friday, my daughter and I took my mother-in-law to Wells, where we visited the Bishop's Palace and gardens. We were celebrating, as my middle daughter has just been offered a place at Newport Uni on a BA Fine Art degree course.
At the moment there is an exhibition of Art and Soul stainless steel sculptures within the landscape gardens, by Ian Marlow.
My daughter, ever the 'David Bailey', was snapping away in the pretty gardens! She loved these black tulips.
The sluicegate that regulates the flow of water from the wells that bubble up in the gardens, which gave Wells its name - Looking very inviting on such a warm day...
This photo was taken inside the recently restored Bishop's chapel, situated next to the medieval Undercroft restaurant.
Within the Bishops Palace, the State Rooms are reached by a Jacobean staircase, where there is currently an art exhibition. Also on display is a beautifully detailed portrait of Wells resident, Harry Patch, when he was 110 years old.
He is the last surviving British soldier to have fought in the trenches during the first world war.
Another visit to the heady scented bluebell woods was in order for Saturday...
The wild flowers were definitely at their best this week.
