On Monday it was decided that we would all be dragged round the Chatsworth House Sculpture exhibition (in the gardens) the next day. Tuesday dawned at our peak district cottages all horrible and miserable so the trip was called off. Thank goodness for that. So we relaxed. Smudge found his favourite duvet spot and I curled up in the hall ready for for some serious ‘down time’. Then all of a sudden at about 1:00PM it was announced that we were going after all. When we looked out it had brightened up and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. So off we went. Of course we have to be on our best behaviour and on our leads when we are in Chatsworth Gardens. It would be right to be seen to be messing around in the Duchesses back garden. Mistress always loves the Gardens – especially at this time of year as all the leaves are changing colour.
The sculptures were as strange as they are every year. I am sure I have seen some of the bits they use in masters garage. The walk round the grounds was pleasant even if we were on our leads. Its difficult chasing squirrels when on a lead. We got the usual attention from people around the gardens especially the ladies where I was made to pose in front of the Damien Hirst statue.
As we had managed to get round the grounds in record time (thanks to master frog marching us around) there was time for afternoon tea at the Stables before we were bundled into the car and abandoned while master and mistress went off to look round the house (they don’t let dogs in the house). We settled down for a snooze.
When we got back to Bolehill farm we found that all the COWs had been moved from our fields – freedom at last! No cows to watch out for.
If you want to see some more of master’s photographs of Chatsworth 2010 sculptures please have a look at http://www.bolehillfarm.co.uk/photo/chatsworth_sculpture2010/index.html. I personally wouldn’t bother but he likes to think he can take photos so please hum0r him.
