Tatton Park - Fantastic

The fireworks display at Tatton Park has to be seen to be believed. The concert audience sit on one side of the lake in front of the stage, whilst on the far side of the lake the firework display presents a real spectacle. Held once a year these concerts are a `must see.`

Our vision is to conserve Tatton Park for the enjoyment of present and future generations.
We aim to:
Provide an enjoyable experience and excellent service;
Show leadership in rural, heritage, conservation and tourism fields;
Make an active contribution to the local community;
Reflect the values and standards of Cheshire County Council and key stakeholders, including the National Trust.
To achieve this we will:
Maintain and conserve Tatton Park’s historic, built and natural features.
Facilitate and encourage local, tourism, civic and business communities to access, support and make appropriate use of Tatton Park.
Develop and maintain relevant sources of income to help realise the vision for Tatton Park.
Provide opportunities for education, the development of young people and lifelong learning through relevant activities and programmes.
Implement a varied programme of events and activities.
Promote Tatton Park as a flagship tourism venue.
Provide quality in service and value.
Help create opportunities for local employment and economic benefit.
Seek to develop people and to be a well-managed organisation.

Hosepipe bans

With the warmest July temperatures recorded for almost 100 years the grass is looking rather parched. Down south there is a hosepipe ban, so gardeners are going to have to try to use whatever means at their disposal to water their gardens. At the moment that`s not a problem up north, but who knows if this weather continues?

Just look at my back garden

This is getting ridiculous. I leave my back garden for two weeks and just LOOK at it now. The buttercups have gone wild.

Now THESE I have no problem in growing. Front, back, whatever the weather, DAISIES are my forte.

Abbey House Gardens

Abbey House Gardens.

Maybe this is where I`m going wrong. It seems that nude gardening is therapeutic for both the gardeners and the plants!

World`s Worst Gardener

I started this blog not because I`m a great gardener, but simply because I can`t garden, I kill everything that goes in my garden, even the plants in my house. The only thing I do rather well is to grow weeds, then I`m the world`s very best.
