Visit to Brightwater Gardens February 2019



This visit on 27th February coincided with the end of the winter’s heat wave. Time to dust off and polish the classic vehicles and venture forth in temperatures of 17/18 degrees!


Having had some excellent quality food in the ‘Old Barn’ we went for a stroll through the gardens. (Anyone thinking about eating in the café – you need to take cash as there is no provision for cards!)

Due to the hot weather most of the Snowdrops had withered but these had been replaced with a colourful display of Daffodils and Crocus.


Time to sit and reflect in the peaceful Lincolnshire countryside.


Not all the colour was floral. The Dogwoods also gave a colourful backdrop contrasting with the silver bark of the Birches.

Of course – I’d arranged for a ‘fly past’ by the Red Arrows to celebrate our visit!!!!

Time for a stroll and natter with friends.

Our tickets allowed us to visit the church at Saxby designed by Capability Brown – very impressive. Well worth a view if in the area
