This week the first flowers of the year have unfurled to brighten up our days in the garden.... Spring can't be far away!

Here in the gardens we have been indulging lots of eating, drinking and merriment over our Christmas holidays, and hope you have too.
But wait! It's not yet time to let go of that festive spirit.... Here are some photos of our wreath making party just before Christmas - a wonderful day with staff, volunteers and visitors enjoying a roaring fire, carols, mulled punch and mince pies :)
Preparing the 'ingredients'.....
.....and then it's time for a spot of fire craft! Nothing like something hot and mulled on a chilly day.
On to the serious business of making the wreaths.
aaaand all finished - don't they look beautiful?
(the wreaths aren't too bad either!)
So all that is left to say now is.....
Happy New Year!!!!
