Six on Saturday | Orchard flowers

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!”

  1. 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!

  2. A multi-sensory delight! I could just imagine breathing in that scented air. A lovely place to escape to! 🙂

      • I shall look forward to those – a great way to have a change of scene and enjoy a bit of exploring without the travel!

let's get chatting...
