Leave behind your phone and laptop and the government snooping into them and head into a garden
The National Trust has some big, beautiful gardens to see, and there are hundreds of smaller ones.
(Do you sometimes get the impression that the English garden was designed, like a stage set, to host a performance of summer for a few days in July? No, these June days have been truly beautiful. Hundreds of kids have been swimming, barbecuing and sunning themselves in the park nearby.)
In a garden we can hope to escape government's no-longer-secret surveillance of our lives.
But can we?
Knowledge is power. How much power do we want government and thousands of people in the pay of political parties to have over us?
