april at corseside...


By sandra


i have not had much time to be on here of late as we are busy setting up a camp site on our land. as we overlook freshwater west a popular surf beach we thought we would offer themm a place to stay. we had hoped to be open on the first of may but we are about four weeks behind. the weather has been kind to us for the last few weeks and we have done loads.

hopefully we will get the cover on this weekend…

these are going to be the toilets and showers. when finished and painted we are hopeing they will look like a row of beach huts…

aswell as the yurt there will be a tipi..


our bonfire site is nearly ready too. as u can see we have been busy. but as we run a nursery too i have been able to snatch some time for my plants. the tomatoes are all in and the aeoniums are doing realy well and enjoying all this glorious weather.

hope u like the pics…
im off to Picton castle plant and craft sale on saturday. picton is a great place full of wonderful plants and Marias cafe is always a treat…

happy gardening Sandra

Oh Maybe I'll try and get to Narberth. It's this agoraphobia you see. I can't go down the road some days. I would like to try and get to Narberth if I could. Thanks for telling me about it.
