We opened our gardens three times last week (Monday 9th, Thursday 12th and Saturday 14th May and in between managed to give a talk to a garden society on the Tuesday, so by Saturday night we were exhausted and our knees and backs ached. But as it was all for the National Garden Scheme charities however much we ached it was worth it.
I thought I would share with you a series of photographs showing our garden during that week to show you what our visitors saw, but this post is specially for my sister Alison who planned to come and help out but illness prevented this happening. So at least she can share this virtual journey around our patch.
We made sure our entrance gave our visitors a warm welcome.
As visitors walk up our drive towards the house they get good views of the patch in front of the house.
Most people who visit us start their tour in the front garden and this is what it looked like last week.
Our white birches are often commented upon!
Our large collection of tulips were really playing a starring role!!
So after this taster of what our garden presented our visitors with please now come for a wander around our Avocet Garden in the following gallery. As usual simply click on the first photo then navigate using the arrows. We hope you enjoy your wander.
