Saffron’s Garden.

In Gardening, Off the beaten track. on July 16, 2011 at 6:50 pm

The garden has been developing over the last 11 years and is now maturing beautifully. There are 2 large ponds.

Beautiful established herbaceous border leading to a lower level seating area and barbecue.

The large polytunnel has a jungle feel, it is filled with a mix of edibles and ornamentals.

One of Saffron’s beautiful sculptures enchances this mixed border.

This lovely piece was also carved by Saffron.

Heading back to the house through the garden.

The next open day is on August 21st or visits can be made by prior arrangement, ring Saffron on 086 8691141.

  1. I really don’t think I’d want a stone cactus sticking up in the middle of things – but is that a wonderful tree-house-type-thing I see before me?

    • Esther, I’ll have to disagree with you there, I love it. Saffron carved it and it represents a seed, magnified. No tree house, I think you’re looking at another of Saffron’s artistic efforts made from branches.

  2. Lovely, lovely, lovely! The pond looks as it was there forever… Also, love the little bridge and a wooden bench. Saffron’s pieces add interest and excitement…

  3. Great looking garden, I could also make good use of a polytunnel such as this one.
