It’s that time of year again when gardeners open their gardens for charity (NGS).  Everyone enjoys seeing other gardens rather than their own to  gather in new ideas and, of course, sample the delicious teas that are usually on offer.

Last Sunday, I set off to Myddfai and just beyond  the village found the beautiful garden of Gelli Mydog. It was a simply beautiful , sunny  day and perfectly  suited to walking round a  hilltop garden with stunning views in every direction.

Together with the many attractions around the garden there was also the  draw of seeing Keith and Moira  from Cilgwyn Lodge Gardens selling their  beautiful plants.

There were pretty places to sit , relax, unwind and enjoy the views and the beautiful  flowers.

  2. What a great idea, raising money for charity this way, and what a grand garden! Loved the pond and stream portion, but it was all beautiful.

      Thank you. Yes it is a great idea to open gardens for charity. The National Gardens Scheme (NGS) opens gardens throughout the UK and is the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK. Last year they raised more than £2.6 million!! It shows that there are many people who love visiting gardens and I’m one of them! Today I visited a garden opened by its owners for another charity the Welsh Air Ambulance service so you can see it’s a busy time for us garden enthusiasts!

    What a wonderful garden. You could open your garden to the public as well and people would be inspired by what you have in your garden.
