Went to see Mrs Bellairs's garden at Wood-croft with Anna saw a Scarlet Anemonie & white peony both very handsome. The Mote round the Garden has a very fine effect & the long Bridges that cross it made of planks & railed with crooked pieces of oak. I thought of the time of Cromwell while walking about it & felt the difference. Swallows had several nests under the bridge
