Garden Open Days
During early summer in May usually, there are an amount of gardens open to the public around the city and county in aid of various charities. I have been to quite a few in the past few years but did not always have my camera with me. This is a garden i visited a while back in 2005 and while i cannot remember now the exact location of it at least you can come on the tour and admire the colours and the variety of plants,shrubs and flowers.The beauty of these garden visits is that there is usually a chance to talk to the owner of same and ask questions of a horticultural nature,maybe a sales table with nice cuttings and plants, and of course coffee/tea and light snacks are also a feature. If you are lucky the sun is shining and after the tour a nice shady seat can be sourced from which to admire and plan for all those improvements to make to your own garden!
A seat with a view!
