Open Gardens 2023

Open Gardens 2023

  (May 20th & 21st)


This year's event was a real success. We had lots of visitors to the beauticul gardens that our very kind residents from the area made avaiable.

And we were blessed with some fantastic weather!


Visit our gallery to see images of the gardens. 


The Open Gardens page contains a review of the event and a poem, 'In this place', by Jenny Lynne Sessions aka Jen-ix which was kindly passed to us by Sarah and Oliver in celebration of the Open Gardens 2023.




Water flows in gaps and spaces,

Turns and falls

like time

The garden smiles as good folk dress her with their gratitude

Laughter echoes through the twisting trees where birds and rabbits dart

The gentle tracks of roaming deer call magic to the dance

At dusk a breeze unfolds the evening

To the beat of nature’s heart

shadows play

bats zig zag by

beneath the twinkling stars

The burly night owl hoots her prayer

such beauty holds this place

The forest sings her good night song and I am filled with grace
