Yeo Valley Organic Gardens

Yeo Valley gardens opened for the season on Thursday so yesterday we picked up Mark’s mum and dad and headed off to wander around yet another garden…with lunch first, of course. Delicious veggie tart and salad at the restaurant.

Clearly 75 is the new 25 as Mark’s Mum and Dad head straight for the rope swing over the brook.

Naturally, at Yeo Valley there are cows.

I am a big fan of camassia –  we bought some a few years back from Highgrove and they are gently spreading across our garden, but are not a patch on this lovely field of blue.

Up on to the viewing platform, through the avenue of blossom trees and on to the gravel garden.

All that swinging from trees is clearly tiring – Mark’s dad takes a breather.

Bees!

Mark and I really covet this water feature…

Father and son.

Through the trees.

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise…!

Back through the camass field.

Just time to admire the rainbow of tulips…

…before tea and cake and a chance to sit and admire the view.
