Thanks for calling in, hopefully you're having a great week.
After my recent visit to Caversham Court Gardens, I arrived home with loads of leaflets and realised I hadn't had a look at the crinkle-crankle wall. How remiss was that!
In case you don't know what a crinkle-crankle wall is, here's a link with more information. I had to go back and see.
The Michaelmas daisies were just opening up.
Lilies by the river, all pink and curly.
Here's the crinkle crankle from the top looking down into the allotments, a bit tricky to get a good photo as the wall is quite long. I had a chat with the octogenarian allotmenteer who told me that the wall is very strong, holding back the hill with the church and cemetery on top and heats up beautifully which helps the fruit trees planted inside the curves.

Back at the station I just had to try a chocolate and caramel ice cream from Tutti Frutti, delicious if somewhat soft!
