Spring !…What a start to real Spring - Bluebells, masses of them out in the garden amongst the Rhododendron, Camellias and Magnolias, the garden looks a picture. AND the Swallows have arrived.Woody, the feline incumbent has grown from a poor abandoned teenage kitten to the most magnificent confident and friendly cat. He's massive,. at over 7kgs he is the new 'Beast of Dartmoor' !Woody loves to meet guests and is definitely a 'gardening' cat, following Alan everywhere and 'helping' (if you can call it that) with gardening duties.Our NGS OPENING on Sunday 29th April 2018 , for the BLUEBELL OPENING, raised a wonderful way total of £850 charity (in two and a half hours!!) Visitors enjoyed looking round the wonderful garden and consuming scrummy tea/coffee and cakes !! We also have several Garden Society tours booked in - looks like a busy year ahead ! NEXT garden opening is Sunday 29th July 2018 2 - 5 p.m. when our National Collection of Eucryphias should be in full glory.
