Six on Saturday is hosted by the lovely Jon, AKA ‘The Propagator’ where you find links to many more wonderful garden enthusiasts from all over the world who share six things from a garden on a Saturday. I usually join in from my garden in Cornwall which is recorded on my Cornwall blog, naturally. But this week I shall be travelling home after a week away from the county, the first time in almost a year!
So what better way to re-open my garden blog (which has been dormant for 18 months) than a visit to the lovely orchard in the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey where tree blossom and wild flowers were a heady delight. The scent of cow parsley and hawthorn drifted through the air which was alive with the music from a choir of songbirds.
“Six things, in the garden, on a Saturday. Could be anything, you decide. Join in!”

Oh, how marvellous to get a change of scene, Jude
It was great Sue, but I’m exhausted now 😂 a quiet day in the garden today in between watching the tennis.
Sounds like a plan!
A Spring paradise, Jude 🙂 🙂
It was like summer there with all the flowers. My garden is way behind.
beautiful – maybe that is where I can go in a couple of weeks with Mum. She has not been there for ages, and of course not far from hers. Hope you had a wonderful time
We did, despite dodgy weather! Have you visited the Kilver Court Gardens in Shepton Mallet? They are lovely and a good little nursery and café too.
Doesn’t ring a bell, but am sure Mum knows it. Will investigate when we’re there 🙂
And so frustrating on weather, still kept it quiet!
A multi-sensory delight! I could just imagine breathing in that scented air. A lovely place to escape to! 🙂
It was delightful and there is a small herb garden too, which I enjoyed. More posts to come once I have sorted out all the photos 😊
I shall look forward to those – a great way to have a change of scene and enjoy a bit of exploring without the travel!
You won’t find me on a train or plane abroad until all the faff with tests etc has ended.
The UK has a lot to offer and it’s supporting our own economy, so holidays here are a good idea. 🙂
What a perfect looking orchard, and a great photo. The red tinged hawthorn is so attractive.
Yes, that red and the pink hawthorn are so lovely.
I love orchards like this with paths flowing through – gorgeous
It was a delight to wander through the grass mown paths.
Beautiful! It looks so warm and summery.
It was on that day!
Yay! I hope you had a lovely escape.
Oh, yes, but we’ve forgotten how busy it is out there after a year in our quiet bubble. Staying close to home this week!
Sometimes people can just be too much!
And the cars and lorries!
