...maybe you will too.
Three days in a row of sunshine!! Drop everything, jump into the car, because in 5 minutes we will be at Coombe having a nice walk with the promise of a hot chocolate too! It is still cold out!
The area beyond the arches was once a garden which supplied all the vegetables and fruit for Coombe Abbey. The 'kitchen garden' as it was known was created in the mid 1860's and exotic fruits (said to be renowned locally) were grown in hot houses. Sadly, all that remains today is the outer wall and that area is closed to the public.
This part of Coombe Abbey has since been sold and that area is owned by the farmer next door. I wonder if I might get permission to have a closer look. (It's on the list!) I can see the logic of having a garden's perimeter denoted by a wall but, goodness me, that is some wall. In the meantime, have look from afar.
Well, that is my world today, participating in Our World Tuesday. Have a good day, folks!
