It has been such an awful gardening year, and every garden has suffered in one way or another, but you wouldn't think so judging from the way this garden looks.
Chris was really taken by the display of dahlias around the house and particularly liked this one, with the vibrant orange set off by the dark leaves.
After visiting the garden, we visited the green burial site http://www.brightwatergreenburial.co.uk/index.php?pid=4 that is owned by the garden owners. It is a very quiet and peaceful place and Chris and I are giving this idea much thought. I like the idea of a green burial and a biodegradable casket, with a native tree planted for you if you would like it and a wildflower meadow there too. Definitely to be considered.
