Visit to Barnsdale

Last Sunday with the promise of good weather a belated birthday trip and no moter racing Robert and i had a trip to Barnsdale garden in Rutland, just down south on the A1. There were over 25 gardens started by Geoff Hamilton back in the 90s and after his death his son carried on building new gardens and keeping up the original one's. As we walked round I recalled the gardens as they were made on the TV programs for the BBC, we used to look forward to Friday nights when it was on and still is today with different presenters over the years. Although I had made a picnic there was no where to eat it but for the car park, you were not allowed to take it into the gardens, so we brought lunch there from the cafe and ate it in the gardens watching other visitors, our first meal out side this year, (and if today's cold weather is anything to go by its our last). We spent the whole day there, plenty to see lots of seats to sit look at the flowers, plants trees and veg.
