A surprise garden!

Sunday afternoon and to stretch my legs after a marathon sorting out of summer clothes - I am sure everyone knows what I mean!! we decided to go for a walk along the coast path, but on our way we happened upon one of those yellow signs to the Garden, well I can't resist a garden especially to nose around other peoples so we followed the signs

After a mile we were guided into a field and walked up to the farm where the garden was, apparently a young couple decided to take over their parents farm garden after going on a horticulture course

Behind the farmhouse there was quite a surprise

I think they were hoping the plants would be a little further on but they were better than mine!
As good as Chelsea maybe!
lovely blossom
and beautiful big marshcups (I hope thats what they are)
and they have built this lovely natural water feature
and there will be a vegtable patch to die for!

and then a lovely walk along the river
and just so that we didn't forget who was in charge!
