The garden and particularly the follies have been continuing to get a lot of attention in the national press with the photograph above appearing full page with script in the prestigious architectural/design magazine Blueprint (May/June) and a feature article in the August issue of World of Interiors see Press.
And we have had some fun with film crews from Channel 4 who made short videos in the garden for the 'Shed of the Year'competition and for 'Tom's Fantastic Floating Hose' see Videos.
It has been a wonderful summer with things looking good and with the near-perfect weather. The visitors have been lovely, as ever, and numbers keep increasing, helped I am sure by their enthusiasm for the good food served by the new tenants of the cafe.
And I am happy to say that I have now persuaded the water powered Cuckoo Clock to be reasonably reliable.
