If you live in Monmouthshire, I am very envious!! On June 18, garden designer, Arne Manyard is opening his garden, Allt-y-Bela for a single evening perfomrance of Romeo and Juliet by the Living Willow Theatre company. Guests are invited to bring a picnic to eat in the garden before the performance starts. A perfect summer's evening, rain or shine, is sure to be had. It sounds like heaven to me....Details, here.
Even better, various day courses
will be held at Allt-y-Bela in June, including:
The Scented Garden, on June 21;
Topiary, Pleached Trees, Hedges and Knots, on June 22;
Orchards and Wildflower Meadows, on June 23.
Course information, here.
When I moved to England over a year ago, I enjoyed gardening
but never thought I would get quite so excited about it. When I
read about this event in House and Garden UK magazine, it was a
'stop the press' moment for me. I just had to share in the hopes
that someone will attend and tell me all about it!
The garden designs of Arne Maynard are all inspiring.
