Two local gardens that back on to each other were ‘open’ to the garden club for tea, cake and beauty. Different styles; one wafting with flowers and interesting colour combos almost like a tapestry; the other, more of a small holding with hectares of land. Impossible to say which is more pleasing. The small holding with onions, fruit trees, a vine even, has a timeless feel as if village life has been enduring and will continue to for ever. The flower garden is massively productive too with a small, tempting nursery. Both peaceful, a joy to be in and both massively loved by their owners and, no doubt, hard work. But passion for doing something stops it being onerous ( mostly).
