“A garden like no other!”  

                            (the comment from one garden judge!)

Welcome to our four seasons garden website.  There are many photos on this site, which may make some pages slow to open. However, we trust that your patience will be rewarded by some enjoyable pictures.

Although we have had no horticultural training, and are totally self taught, we believe we have created something very special.  We have re-landscaped and planted our garden to be exciting in all four seasons. The garden is now used and enjoyed by our family and many visitors of all ages.

We have derived immense pleasure from doing this huge project together without outside help. It has been very satisfying to use so many skills, and to have done every task ourselves, despite us both having had full time jobs until retirement in October 2009.  All but two of all the plants in our garden have been planted by us.

We hope the photographs convey some of the pleasures our garden has given to our family, friends and visitors.
