Now Spring has arrived, the daffodils are popping up and colour is filling our gardens it seemed an opportune time to write about our sensory garden. It won’t be long before the sun comes out and our residents can spend their days relaxing in the gardens.
A project built with care and attention; the sensory garden was created by Jacqui McVay who designed this purpose-built haven within the grounds of The Manor House. The vast lawns with seating areas lead the way to a garden that is full of hidden delights. Beautiful features like statues and an old boat, plants attracting butterflies and a herb garden laden with photos and descriptions provide variety and lots of areas of interest for our residents to enjoy.
The paths intertwine towards a memory tree and stag statue who takes pride of place.
A barbeque located within a gazebo is ready for summertime parties for residents and their loved ones.
The garden also features a paddock where we regularly bring in petting animals for our residents to interact with. A greenhouse and potting areas are located within the garden for our green fingered residents.
We’re really looking forward to spending time in the gardens this spring and summer, and hopefully welcoming back visitors once again.
Look out for photos of the gardens on our Facebook page.
