Sledmere House, walled garden 10th September, 2015.

Plein air oil on canvas board 12 x 10 inches.

A late start, necessitated by the painting of our porch before setting off, saw us travel to Sledmere House. This involves a short trip through the beautiful East Yorkshire wolds. Today was sunny and breezy after a previous spell of grey, cold and chilly weather. At Sledmere we walked to the walled garden straight away, postponing lunch plans until after painting, as a large coach party were taking their lunch. Walking to the walled garden we passed the enclosed "bantam" chickens who were actually using their perches. This was unusual as it was the first time we had seen them do this in about ten visits. We entered the garden and headed straight for the path which led to the summer house. We quickly established a view to paint, the main feature being the summer house itself. The gratifying amount of herbaceous plant colour was wonderful to see. Lots of rudbeckia in particular, though also many reds and blues and a ethereal purple foliage plant. Slightly surprising as the season is now running down for many plants. We adjourned to the cafe for some late light lunch and noticed the absence of the "chirruping" of house martins. We thought that they had set off to migrate south to Africa, until, a pair flew past almost dipping their wings as if saying that they were off, and would see us next year.
