A potpourri of posts, about our adventures and experiences of the last few months whilst I’ve been a lax blogger.
August. Two galleries in one weekend. First stop the Harley Gallery, at Welbeck. Welbeck and the Portland collection was somewhere completely off my radar until I stumbled upon a workshop by the very gifted Mrs Bertimus, which was hosted in studios of Hope and Elvis, part of the creative complex of studios in the grounds of Wellbeck.
I came home to tell Mr Uphilldowndale all about it; so we decided to visit.
As well as the collection and the gallery, with it’s changing exhibitions.
The neatly landscaped gallery had some interesting fruit trees, this is I’m told a medlar, I’d not heard of them before, maybe that is no surprise
and a golden pear.
There is a farm shop too, oh my, meat out of the league of the average supermarket.
We pitched our van on the Welbeck campsite, it was quite, we were the only visitors.
