Nantclwyd's Garden

There wasn't much going on here over the holiday weekend - it seems everyone stayed home to watch television.  On Tuesday there was a Food & Drink Fair at Ruthin Castle however so as its just a short walk from my house we went along.  On the way back I wanted to called in at Nantclwyd y Dre as I knew the garden had been restored since I last visited.  The house and gardens date back to the 1400s and after years of standing empty and falling into disrepair it has been bought for the town by the local council.  Inside the house has been restored and completely transformed - each room recreating a different period in its history.
The garden is still a work in progress but I was delighted to find the two storey gardenhouse, which had been completely derelict the last time I saw it, has been brought back to life and turned into the gardeners' bothy.  There was practically no one around so we had the place almost to ourselves and I was able to snap away with my camera without getting visitors from the 21st century in the frame!

And speaking of frames, my very talented and good friend Godelieve very kindly let me use her four photo template here.  Thank you Godelieve!
