There was so much to see, it was a bit overwhelming. We were welcomed by the owners, who were happy to introduce us to the gardens and then allow us to wander, sketch or paint wherever we wished. We found lots of beautiful flowers, plants, shrubs and trees of all kinds, quirky sculptures, wooden buildings, benches and garden furniture galore. There was a different view round every corner. Although we were there for most of the day, it wasn't long enough to do it any kind of justice. However, we tried - and with some interesting results as you can see below. We were 16 altogether, although not all stayed to tea when we looked at each other's work and, on this occasion, also heard from the owner about the development of these wonderful gardens.
