On Saturday the 24th April we visited another of our favourite gardens near us, Merriments Gardens. This garden covers about 4 acres, and is always worth a visit. This visit was to see the most marvelous display of tulips of every imaginable colour, as well as many trees in full blossom. The gardeners have really laid out an incredible display. We like the way they label most of the plants in the garden so we can choose those we would like for our own garden.
The garden should be visited several times a year, as, as summer progresses, so does the garden!
Our pictures can only give you an idea of the splendor, so please try and get to the garden soon to see them for yourself.
I managed to get a picture of Prue and our dog, Lettie, enjoying the view from one of the many benches scattered around the garden:
We often sit quietly in the bird hide to see the some of the over 25 species of birds that feed right in front of you.
The site has a garden terrace restaurant, fantastic nursery and gift shop to fill your every need.
