Beautiful house and gardens in Farringdon

The BGs visited a lovely house and garden in Upper Farringdon where one of one of Beech’s former residents’ parents live.  The gardens are open to the public on occasions and they are well worth a visit.

Their NGS page in case anyone wants to find out more is here.

It was a lovely sunny afternoon and the BGs really enjoyed their stroll around the garden and the tea afterwards.

Here is a little report sent in by Helen Lamb –

“The Farringdon trip was marvellous!  David and Cally certainly work hard in their garden and it pays dividends. There are various parts to the garden.  A lovely sunny patio, herbaceous borders, vegetable sections and greenhouses.

Details on ‘warm propagation’ with straw bales, were great to see in ‘action’, and a wild area with wild flowers for insects and birds.  The weather was perfect, as were the cakes and cups of tea.  Two well behaved and fun dogs added to the enjoyment.

One of the highlights towards the end of our visit was the sight of a busy Hummingbird Hawk Moth, gathering nectar from some of the flowers.  Only, it was so difficult to get a good photo of  but we hovered around and marveled at its beauty.”

Yet another popular and enjoyable outing with the BGs.  Below are the “well-behaved and fun dogs” – and a photo gallery of pictures sent in by Ian Hardy  and Sue Robinson
