No Tarmac Here!

It’s not often that I dedicate an entire blog to the driveway of Bealtaine Cottage, but today is totally about that most viewed and often ignored part of the gardens. Rosa Canina is opening with the promise of hips this Autumn. The driveway is an integral part of the gardens as it is not only the entrance to the cottage but the corridor of connection between the cottage and the rest of the land. I counted the trees I planted along this 120metre stretch of lane…over 70! Trees like this Hazel… Providing clean air! Cotoneaster gives flowers, colour in autumn…
