So it was firstly the duck and now it's a new heron, the kids certainly love them but it begs the question whether or not there is a problem with the fish being taken by other birds. Personally I think one statue is enough and the two makes the pond slightly crowded and less attractive. We'd love to hear your views on this, so please comment below.
We think firstly it's great to see so many bees around in the Mansion Gardens, especially after they are dying in so many numbers. However we are also are really impressed in the beauty and amount of flowers in the gardens, we have to say this is thanks to the Nonsuch Voles Volunteers and the Council Gardener.
It seems recently a stone duck has been placed into the small pond in the gardens, I don't know who put it there but it certainly looks lovely and is a welcome edition in our opinion.
For those who do not know, a peice of wall in the formal gardens is being refurbished into hopefully how it once stood. When finished it should look great, but also bring back some history to the gardens.
The full Planning Notice can be found below:
The flowers are out and the gardens are looking lovely. It's just great to go for a stroll whilst the flowers bring so much colour and life to the gardens. Be sure not to miss them before they die away because it really is a beautiful site.
Below you can see one of the fabulous flower beds which contains something to do with the olympics. In this picture it contains the olympic torch surrounded by the British colours red, white and blue. Well done to the garderner/s who created this magnificent flower art
As I captured this image, the thought of the curved clowd trail could be a rainbow with a 'pot of gold' ie. the Flower bed at the bottom
By the Sundial in the formal gardens lays several beds full of yellow and orange flowers. It really gives some brighter colours to all the overcast days we have had
There has been an obvious sign of the end of spring and start of summer, the rose tunnel which was once adorned with flowers is now starting to lose its roses as the petals drop off
