Winter wonderland ...

2020 got off to a very soggy start. The golf course was closed for most of Janaury and February and our favourite drinking hole (The Bell at Skenfrith) was flooded again - the second time in 3 months.

In March the weather picked up - but so did the Coronavirus!

Spring forward ...

The lock down gave us an opportunity to complete a couple of projects in the garden. The veggie garden has a new fence and fresh compost in the raised beds, and the ‘Sundowner’ terrace is now ready for summer evening drinks ...

Summertime and the living is easy ...

The lockdown and travel restrictions have allowed us to spend a lot of time in the garden. It has never been so ‘tidy’ - sadly nobody has been to see the results of our hard work.

We did manage to get away for a fabulous week in Dartmouth for some September sunshine.
