Visited a Garden!

We were without small children (or teens) because a Duke of Edinburgh expedition and an auntie took the children away… so childless for the first time in a couple of years, we relaxed and treated ourselves to a night out and a garden visit.

We went 10 minutes drive out of Letchworth and visited Gotha Gardens, nr Baldock. We’ve been before but the time has seen more of the garden develop and more planting and landscaping in progress. The colour scheme at the moment was largely purples, reds and blues, and lots of tulips, which is right up my street and the pleasant courtyard garden meant a lovely hour or so was passed before we had to make tracks for the DoE collection point (and we needn’t have rushed as our hiker’s group was delayed by an hour).

There look like lots of planned developments on the Gotha garden which mean it will be somewhere to keep going, plus if we have to continue socially distancing, then gardens with cafes are an ideal venue!
