Well, that was a really rather pleasant Bank Holiday. And it marked the Open Garden day in Charlbury. The National Gardens Scheme is a rather splendid charity that organises people with great gardens to open them up to the public for a day a year. Founded in 1927 it raises funds for a range of charities like ACEVO members Marie Curie, Macmillan, Help the Hospices, the NT and Alzheimer’s. Over the last 10 years £22m has been raised. This year over 3,800 gardens will open. So a good cause indeed. And the 2 Charlbury gardens are a marvel. My friends Andrew and Briony Lawson own Gothic House and have a real plantsman's garden and the Priory have a great 7 acres laid to formal gardens and trees and scrubland that run down to the River Evenlode.

See for yourself here.
