I have several blogposts half writtten - on Rauschenberg and Hockney exhibitions at the Tate; ' Entangled Threads at Turner Contemporary and the final class of Contemporary Drawing Sketchbook , not to mention a heap of chores around the house outstanding. But the sunshine beckoned and we needed some more practice walks in preparation for Greece so we headed off by bus to Boughton to follow the trail of the Peasant's Last Revolt.
In the churchyard at Hernhill are buried the local labourers who lost their lives at the battle of Bossenden Wood. Along the way we had a closer glimpse of orchards in blossom and the bright acid yellow of field of oil-seed rape we've been admiring from the train along with ranks of weirdly shaped trees.
After lunch at the 'Dove' in Dargate( practicing for Taverna lunches...) we stopped at marked viewpoints for spectacular if misty views before heading into Blean Woods with masses of violets and wood anenomes. Look forward to coming back at bluebell time.
