Whose that Girl?

Our village took part in the open garden scheme this weekend just gone and I thought that I would share some of the sights with you all. The weekend had two elements to it, one being the gardens themselves and the other was an exhibition of needlecraft, flower arranging and quilts in our church of St Anthonys. I will post those pictures in a few days.
In a previous blog I showed you the gate through which man person goes to work each day and Steph ( was curious as to what was behind it...well here for your delectation is a peek!

There are 2 properties, one is the main house and the one below is a seperate cottage.

The stunning Rosa Rugosa that smells totally divine.

At the furthest end of the garden is the lake, which is quite stunning in the sunshine and full of fish, and the most gorgeous of water lillies.

It even has it's own island in the middle. The perfect spot for a picnic!

A very productive vegetable plot, bursting with lovely goodies.

Two days meant two different outfits apparently!

A veritable feast of home made goodies, the scones being my contribution.

It was two wonderful warm sunny days and a good time was had by all.
