Hello Wales

Well we had a rather wet and windy trip to Wales - camped on site but the tent broke in the strong East wind so we stayed B&B in Rhyl the next night.

But we received a very warm welcome from all the Welsh staff and volunteers at Bodelwyeddan Castle in Denbyshire

It is a sister of The National Portrait Gallery London. Bodelwyddan holds the collection of Welsh Portraiture.

And it is haunted!

We had lots of great volunteers helping us on both days - made installation very easy and it looks beautiful. BIG THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!

Welsh TV were filming it today as local knitters from a Welsh language speaking group have knitted a bird table, Welsh flag and garden hose. Sadly we didn't get to see all of these but I expect it looks really good. I love the fact that the garden keeps on growing at every venue. We don't know when it will be shown on TV but will let you know.

I am creating a new section on the blog called The Different Gardens and Their Makers which will show sections of the garden with the stories of the people behind them.

  1. Wow... this is amazing. I haven't seen something this spectacular since that coral crochet reef someone organized. This is great! Everyone who participated deserves a pat on the back.
