On a cold but sunny Saturday morning we met for a garden visit in Melbourne Derbyshire.

Our visit started in the dining room,with a welcome talk by the garden owner and a delicious selection of cakes plus tea and coffee.

The garden had developed quite a lot since our last visit in 2010 and many of us enjoyed spotting the changes.

In the afternoon we visited the adjacent Melbourne Hall for a guided tour by the owner together with the head gardener.
