It was a perfect weather for outing. The blue sky was painted with silver clouds and a bright golden sun whose rays felt like a warm shower that makes you want to stay there until your soul gets soaked up in a refreshingly delightful moment. It was one of those days when I wish the sun would stop right where it is while I bask in all its glory. It was one of the open days for the Bishops Garden in Norwich where local charities could use the place to raise money, and it was the last one for summer 2013.
Usually closed to the public, however, the Bishops Garden will be opened again during the Heritage Open Days in September 12-15 this year. So if you missed this one, you still got a chance.
The garden sits in a modest 4-acre walled property at the back of the Norwich Cathedral. The landscape invites you to stop and smell the roses. The plants sway and dance gracefully with the whistling wind as if they were performers on a stage play, perhaps some ballerinas whose movements are precise and captivating.
A choir was singing in an open stage while onlookers were seated on the chairs and some on the lawn. In the other corner, behind the hedge a cellist was also performing in front of a small audience. A helicopter hovered above, everyone was enjoying a tranquil afternoon.
To culminate the great day off, my family had a tea at the Red Lion pub.
