What a pleasure to meander through a local garden last week through the NGS (National Gardens Scheme) and enjoy the fruits of other people’s labour! Over 350 different types of plant and a few unusual additions make this a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon. It’s better still when you can top it off with tea and home-made cakes! We even managed to dodge the rain, as you can see from the pictures.
Next chances to visit:-
Sun 30 June (10-5) £3, children free – homemade teas available (and recommended!).
Wed 24 July (6-9 Evening Opening £4, children free, wine.
They also take group visits by appointment June – August.
I’m no gardener, as anyone who has seen our place well knows, but who doesn’t enjoy exploring a well-designed and managed garden? I really envy their ‘sit spot’ under the lovely wisteria…
