The Tulip

Gardens do not run to a time-table. You cannot be certain that a particular flower will be at its best on the day you choose. The plant chooses. So I am a little apprehensive as I write about the tulips in the garden. By the time you read this, some of the tulips may have passed their best. Others may not yet be in flower. The photos will have to bear witness to the fact that the tulip written about were worth seeing or would be worth seeing.

Miss Matty's Favourite Flower 

It’s National Gardening Week between 10 - 17 April and so we thought we’d introduce people to the garden that surrounds Elizabeth Gaskell’s House and to the plants that are in the garden and flowering this week.

Probably the most enjoyable and laughter filled few weeks I’ve had in a long time!

Pauline volunteers regularly, welcoming visitors to our period rooms and tea room. She was recently involved in ‘Gaskell the Musical’ project with enJOY arts & musician Claire Mooney.
