Que Sera Sera ….

Reading time 4 minutes

… Whatever will be will be, as the song goes. I have reached a point now where all I can do is clean and tidy in preparation for our house guests. The garden is in good shape, although we could have done with warmer weather to coax some of the flowers into bloom. The forecast for the weekend is fine and dry, so we should be set fair. Meanwhile there will be plenty to share with our visitors – some splendid lilies, dahlias and agapanthus, added to which the garden smells incredible thanks to Trachelospermum jasminoides –  a flawless sheet of sweetly fragrant white blossom.

Thank you in advance to Simon, Rachel, Jack, Scarlett, Beth, Dan, Nigel and James for volunteering to help, and of course to Alex (aka Him Indoors) for the bake-a-thon which is about to begin. We have a birthday, a wedding and more impending nuptials to celebrate, so it should be a fun few days.

We do hope you can come along and share our garden with us. For those who can’t there will be a full update on The Frustrated Gardener next week.

Planning a Visit

The Watch House garden will be open on Saturday August 1st and Sunday August 2nd from 12-4. Entrance £3. Well behaved adults, children and dogs are very welcome. The garden is small, so at times it may become quite busy. Refreshments, will be served in our new garden at No.3 Polegate Cottage. Please make time for some tea and cake!

There is no car parking immediately outside either house. The carpark off Broadstairs High Street is your best bet: turn in between Cooke and Co. Estate Agents and The Fireplace Company. On Sunday there is unrestricted parking on some of the surrounding streets. From the station, The Watch House is about a 7 minute walk straight down the hill towards the sea. The address of the Watch House is 7, Thanet Road, Broadstairs, CT10 1LF. It is immediately next door to Elite Fitness Studio which is well signposted around the town.

    1. Hi Judy. I am trying to complete my write up, but my niece Martha has other ideas! I shall try tonight when she’s gone to bed. A lot of rosé has been consumed over the last few days but then, we have the weather for it!

    1. Thank you Kevin. We are on holiday this week so living outside. My niece Martha is currently asleep in the garden, surrounded by flowers. We do a daily tour together to see what’s looking good 🙂
