Photographer's Note

Part of the garden at Buckland Abbey, and as you can see from the flower beds, the garden is 'at rest'. Plenty of open soil for the garden birds to go foraging.

"Hundreds of years ago, Cistercian monks chose this tranquil valley as the perfect spot in which to worship, trade and farm their estate.

The abbey, later converted into a house, today combines furnished rooms with museum galleries bringing to life the story of how seafaring adventurers Sir Richard Grenville and Sir Francis Drake and the fate of England."
(National Trust leaflet)

If you visit Buckland, what is so refeshing is how quiet it is. Far away from main roads and the perpetual noise of traffic.

Thank you for looking.

Sorry about the mistake re the date when taken, for some reason my camera insists that it is 2020! I will try and get it sorted. When posting I hadn't realised my error.
