Tuesday Treasures – 2 #Brainfluffbookblog #LightintheLockdown


I’ve been uploading photos of my garden on my Sunday Posts, which have been getting a lot of positive comments, so I decided to make them a regular feature, but this time at full size so you can better appreciate the plants. It was my birthday on Friday and though it’s hard to imagine on this blustery, rain-soaked Tuesday morning, it was hot with bright sunshine and ideal for the planned picnic at Borde Hill Garden with my daughter and three grandchildren. We had to book in advance, which meant it was easy to observe social distancing and the gardens were fabulous. So here are some of the pics I took…

  1. What is inside the box with the cool windows? I so wish we could go to all the gardens here but they remain closed because of the virus. I have a black thumb but absolutely love to see plants and flowers that other people grow. I am sad that this year I have to miss prime flower time. Though I did get to hike this past weekend so that was awesome. Arrr!

Yes – I was so pleased when they opened up some of the gardens around us. No cafes, of course – but it was absolutely lovely to visit.

    • There is a booking system, which you have to do in advance online and if you don’t, then you’re turned away, so there is plenty of room and no queuing when you arrive. We were lucky enough to have brilliant sunshine all day – which I now realise was very, very fortunate as every day since has been chilly, blowy and today it’s just poured continually!

  2. What a beautiful garden. I love visiting gardens and trying to pick out all the plants and shrubs that I recognise and I love the fact that the larger gardens can have such deep borders which also allows them to plant some magnificently architectural plants.

    • Yes – and it’s also interesting to see larger specimens of plants I’m tempted to put in the garden – before I realise the size of them! Although I ignored that one with the echiums because I simply fell in love them:)).
