Epperstone Open Gardens
Another Open Garden Visit on Sunday. This time we went over the road to Epperstone where they were holding the Epperstone Festival and Open Gardens. Having already seen the delights of Pete and Janet's Town Garden on Saturday it was lovely to get out and see a contrasting selection of village gardens (ranging from cottage gardens to huge manor houses!).
I think afternoons spent wandering around other peoples' gardens can be really inspiring. I am constantly amazed by the natural beauty which can found in our gardens, the colours, shapes, scents and textures, and the 13 gardens which were open to the public were filled to the brim with visual displays of gorgeousness!!Here is a small selection of photos I took, I'm finally getting to grips with the new DSLR we bought at Christmas.
Whilst wandering it made me realise how important it is to put time aside for yourself and your family during these busy times we are all in and just be thankful for, and enjoy being in, the present moment.
