    Thanks so much for re-blogging my Birthday bash part two. I do hope your readers enjoy it enough to look at part one, and come and take a look when I add part three. I love visiting interesting and historical places and gardens; photography is another passion in addition to my writing, so wherever I go I take lots of photos. I have posted lots of photos wherever I have visited and your readers can find them on my blog (if they look around) with information about my visits. Thanks once more, really appreciated. Jane x
