It is true what they say, that you never do the things on your own doorstep.
Until Sunday i had never been to Easton Walled Gardens.
They are the "lost" gardens, lying undisturbed to be overtaken by brambles for 50 years. Quite how anyone can lose anything which is clearly sign posted from the A1 is anybody's business.
They are being restored to their former glory, the beautiful house was pulled down in the 50's, as they were inclined to do then. Heart breaking, visit the history room, for amazing photographs of how it looked, and the transformation of the gardens.
It is a sort of "keep on the grass" garden, we went for the end of sweet pea week, where secateurs are provided to pick one's own.
I became a friend of the gardens, so you can expect to hear a lot more about it, and if ever i saw a garden more perfect for a photo shoot......
and they do tea, and cake, and they sell plants.
