What our visitors saw! Our first NGS open Day of 2015

This year we are opening our garden five times, once each month from April to August so that visitors can see it develop as the year progresses. Our first opening was on 15th April, a sunny warm day so we were pretty busy. This blog is a wander around our Avocet garden with my camera just before our visitors arrived. Enjoy a wander with me.

I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

  1. Each area looks wonderful. But, when I saw how many times you were going to have it open all I could think about was how much weeding were you going to have to do. 🙂 Have a great summer and I hope you have lots of guests who appreciate your hard work.

    Divine. How have you been able to travel so much and still keep the garden in such pristine condition is a mystery.
