ZOMG! It’s Delphinium Week at Godinton House!

I know, right? It seems like only yesterday. The picture, of course, is not Godinton House. It is but the head gardener’s place at Godinton House, but I fell in love with it because it had those awesome pointy boo-boos on either side. I didn’t do so great in my architecture course

Godinton House is a grand old pile. Per the masonry dates on the house, building was continuous from the 15th to the 20th Centuries, though it all aged down and works well together. In six hundred years, it has only been in the hands of two families. We didn’t go in, on account of we were there for the delphiniums.

The delphiniums! If you wouldn’t know a delphinium if the Delphinium Fairy rammed a flaming delphinium up your ass, here is a nice picture Uncle B took today. But there were acres of them in the most spectacular colors. The weather was perfect for it today, too.

The delphinium part of the garden is maintained by the Kent and East Sussex chapter of the Delphinium Society. All kidding aside, they seemed a nice bunch of old dears, and the gardens were spectacularly pretty.

p.s. I’m still playing that online card game, Hearthstone. I went to post something on their user forums tonight and got the message that my account has been suspended. No explanation or nothing.

Me. My account. Don’t they know I’m a respectable goddamned middle aged church lady? I just got back from a fucking delphinium show, for chrissakes!
