Gardening with Jim Saul – Dyffryn Fernant revisited.

How the Garden has changed in three and a half months !

After our visit to the wonderful gardens of Dyffryn Fernant on a warm May day, owner Christina Shand kindly invited Jim Saul and I to return in August to see how things have grown during the summer. This time our visit coincided with a muggy misty day , when the very first hints of autumn can just be seen in the plants and scenery around the valley.

Jim pointed out some of his personal favorites to be found here and some of those are very unusual and distinctive – well worth a visit before autumn sets in. Of places to visit in Wales this far west Dyffryn Fernant is highly recommended.

Pembrokeshire County Show – Mud and Sunshine.

As the sunshine returned, the crowds poured into Haverfordwest Showground for the third and final day of the 2017 Pembrokeshire County Show. Getting around was no problem in stout shoes or wellies and the main paths were clear, but the arenas had become waterlogged overnight and this, unfortunately, meant that the Grand Parades of livestock could not go ahead and the motorbike display team’s show was cancelled, too.

Oh yes! Pembrokeshire County Show is a dog-friendly day out.

On the first day of the 2017 show the sun came out after some torrential rain the day before – a few issues for parking with parts under water and some muddy patches, but otherwise all set for a grand day out. Dogs on leads with responsible owners equipped with pooh bags are made very welcome. We decided to take our 2-year-old Border Collie, Cwtch, to see how she got on!
