The Moor Garden has almost recovered from the ravages of Winter

Tuesday 1st June 2010
     Last Sunday was a cool blustery day with the odd passing shower and only fleeting glimpses of the sun.Having spent the last 12 months filming the Garden on the Moor the last  sequence was filmed in April at daffodil time, so from the experience of last years seasons and allowing for the colder winter I though it was about right to visit the garden when the Spring colours were at their best.This was a shortish walk of about about 5 miles over the Pennine moors into Noah Dale where the Garden sits on a north facing slope 1000 ft above sea level, this time we were with four of our friends who make sure they visit the garden once a year.The garden this year still looks blooming and colourful but has lost a little of its sparkle because of the ravages of the winter and also some of the plants and shrubs have had some late frost damage.Anybody on their first visit to the garden it will look superb but it just lacks that brilliance of previous years.

                The garden is well known for its Himalayan Blue Poppies

                       To all gardeners out there... visit this garden
                       and I guarantee you won't be disappointed
