The Garden we came to

               Views of the back garden in the 1990’s


10 years or so before we arrived with the old barn along the side, now a ruin

We first visited our new home whilst holidaying in the area in March 2006

On a further visit a few weeks later this is how we found what was to be our new garden

We finally made the move at the end of June, by this time our new home had been unoccupied for about 18 months so nature had had a VERY free hand in the garden as the photos show!!

We set about clearing a way through, starting nearest the house in the area we see most. We tamed some of the lawn, leaving parts as a natural ‘meadow’ for the time being and gradually gained access to new areas. Plants we brought with us from our Oxford home were used or stored until space became available.
