I do hope you enjoyed Part I of the Palace and Gardens. Let us take another walk and see what else we can find in the 19 acres around the Palace, both old and new! There were a few surprises and all of them very nice ones.

Dear Charleen, thank you for your most kind comments. I am glad you enjoyed your little tour. Tell Charley not to worry as there are thousands of orchards all over Kent. It is not called the Garden of England for nothing.
Hugs for Charley!
Regards.

Dear Charleen, I am sure the farmers would not mind Charley eating all the windfall apples pears, cherries, quinces, plums etc. But I refuse to go near his rear end if he has been eating prunes!
Regards.

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing You know, NeilMules and donkeys are more selective in where they go to the bathroom. My longeas use one spot to tinkle and one spot to poo. Unlike a horse they just goes when it feels like it. I love horses, but love my longears even more so. Guess I'm just an old "mule woman" Hurray! Hurray!

Dear Charleen, prunes are a very powerful laxative to any animal. Don't go near fruit bats when they have been eating them without a tin helmet, you have been warned.
