Garden of England

I went down to visit my recently retired father today. My parents still live in Kent where I grew up. Beautiful Kent, known as the Garden of England. Dad and I took advantage of the spring sunshine, first sitting in their garden and watching the local bird population (two collared doves, a shy robin and an extremely aggressive blackbird) and then after lunch with a walk in the countryside.
