We have come to Wetlands Centre on Somerset Levels to collect a log basket for DS's and girlfriend's new house.
The local basketmakers make high quality products, all hand made, using locally grown willow.
There is also a museum here showing the history of this local industry, and a tea room.
I love baskets and so I love coming here.
Our house is already full of their products, including wicker furniture, but I still love to browse in the shop.
And every time I come here I suddenly remember that I "really need" another basket, and today is no different!
We drove back across the Levels and although it wasn't a day for sightseeing, we decided to make a small detour and visit the Stembridge Tower Mill, built in 1822, the last remaining thatched windmill in England,
which has been restored by the National Trust.
In the garden next to the mills is an old Mulberry tree.
There is also something else growing here.
Do you hang up a mistletoe at Christmas? Do you know how it grows?
Mistletoe is a parasitic plant, which grows from other trees, in this area mainly from old apple trees.
You can see from the spots on the picture that it was raining by then and time to go home.
