NGS

Last weekend we went to someone's garden to look around.

This is part of the National Garden scheme (http://www.ngs.org.uk/). The garden we went to is at a place called Antrobus. Frandley cottages to be exact.

The place is owned by a very nice couple. They moved in about six years ago. When they moved in, the gardens were just trees and grass. Here are a few pictures of the gardens now.

A nice little water feature.

 

They serve tea and cakes and the whole afternoon was a really nice day.

These schemes are run all over the UK. I suspect that there are similar things run in other countries.

Have a look and see if there are any schemes run near you.
