This area of the garden is the oldest with the large oak estimated to be over 300 years old (near our ‘Lazy Days’ sculpture of the girl reading her book).
We put in a winding path through the wood in order to see at close hand in winter the snowdrops, aconites and the early crocus, all of which were planted many, many years ago.
They naturalise with the wind and we have allowed them full rein.
We built a wildlife pond and bog garden in 2008 to provide a safe haven for all kinds of fauna and
this year were lucky to have a mallard and her brood take up residence!
