Karen & Martin's Lockdown Retreat - back garden

These photos show many hours spent making our garden our own little sanctuary we can share with our friends and family. Each year I like to host a large Macmillian Coffee morning and I am proud to show my garden to all my past and present NHS colleagues, they love coming to see the garden, although this year this may not be possible .
I try and keep all my plants in pots from past years, as well as grow more from tiny plugs and seeds! This year it kept us very busy and occupied us in both mind and body. Gardening has been very therapeutic and helped us get through difficult times. We await many plants still to flower!
I am a retired ward Sister and during my career I have sent many of my patients from the acute hospital to Priscilla Bacon Lodge and have nothing but praise for the wonderful staff there dedicating nursing care at the end of patients life in this wonderful hospice.
It gives us pleasure to show our garden photos while raising money for a wonderful place.
