Without going into all the details, friends who had opened their garden for a charity invited a group of us around the next day for a private view.
It was a really well designed garden, taking advantage of every corner, with an amazing display of flowers in bloom, resulting in a mass of colours: irises, crab-apples, rhododendrons, pansies, roses and many, many more.
There was a little pool with a fountain and goldfish (obviously content, given the rate at which they're said to be breeding!) and a genuine well. We came home and vowed to do better in our garden!
