Short but sweet. Well, apart from the atrocious weather we experienced for much of February, it was sweet. When the sun came out to warm our backs (and hearts) all was well with the world, if you discount Coronavirus, Syria, Brexit and all! The microcosm which is Colesbourne Gardens provided a brief respite from the winter blues, with lovely displays of white and green snowdrops, purple cyclamen, crocus, yellow aconites and early flowering daffodils, interspersed with shrubs of all colours.
Charities providing teas and cakes have raised good funds for their respective causes and this is an important part of our raison d’être, sharing our success with those who need it most – and on some of the days, a cup of hot tea was most definitely required!
We are now closed for the season, but not resting. The paths need attention after all the rain and we are planning new walks within the gardens and beyond for 2021 for visitors to enjoy. Please keep a lookout for news here….
Thank you to all who visited us in 2020 and may the rest of your year be filled with colour!
