English Stuff is OLD

The weather here is springy and gorgeous, so John and I went to Bury to the Abbey Gardens yesterday. The gardens consist of the ruins of an medieval abbey, along with gardens that have won "Britain in Bloom" awards. Apparently, Bury won the "Best Little Town in The World" award in Japan in 1999. Who knew?

The building in the background is the current Bury Cathedral, with the tower that was completed in 2004.

It's known for the gardens and flowers, although it was still kind of early. There were daffodils everywhere, and some gorgeous pansies. We'll have to go back in a month or so- it'll be even better then.

Oh yeah, and we had ice cream. :)
