Llanbedr and Tal Y Bont Open Gardens Day

Llanbedr and Tal Y Bont Open Gardens Day
After a lovely long doggie walk in the beautiful sunshine on Sunday morning we dropped the doggies back at home for a snooze and then set off to the other side of the valley to have a wander round the gardens that were open in the Llanbedr and Tal Y Bont Open Gardens Day. 
 Arriving in the village we bought our map in the village hall along with a few raffle tickets, and first things first, sat down for a cup of coffee and slice of cake, then once we were suitably fueled up we set off up the hill to the first garden.

It was just my sort of garden, full of trees, with nature just about under control and with something to see at every turn.

This tree trunk wood carving was amazing ....

... the detail truly lovely.
The rest of the tree was planked just like our old oak tree was a couple of years ago and the wood left drying in just the same way as ours.  Nothing wasted .... but they had artwork as well.  Hopefully our tree base will one day soon be a table top and we will be able to drink in the view of the valley from seats around it.

They had left little signs hanging all around the garden  :-)

But their scarecrow made me jump out of my skin!!
We climbed high up the hill to partake of a fantastic lunch at the Valley View Tea Rooms, which turned out to be someone's house completely thrown open to the public and bursting at the seams with happy diners.

We had a brilliant day out. 
We walked for miles, talked to lots of garden owners, including a lovely elderly couple that lived high on the hillside and gardened their very steep garden without any help at all.  Pinched lots of ideas and were struck by inspiration at almost every turn.

Then it was back to the village hall for more coffee and cake, and a few very necessary plant purchases before setting off for the bridge across the river and home.
If you're in this area in two years time be sure to lookout for the roadside signs that advertise this fantastic day.
