There was lots to look at and it seemed the sort of place that could be visited every month of the year and there'd be something different to see.
There are lots of unusual plants in the flower beds and this time of year the daffodils were especially impressive. Apparently the bluebells will be out in a week or so, it's about a mile from the house up on top of the hill, so somewhere to plan to see and wear proper walking shoes.
Afterwards we had a lovely lunch, sitting outside the cafe on the spacious lawn in the spring sunshine. It's very reasonable, good quality - and understandably very popular.
Then we looked round the nursery, which was filled with all sorts of plants.
