We had a lovely morning at Kilver Gardens, the sun was shining, it was warm and not many people were around so they didn't 'get in the way'.

I agree with Jane - the Designer Outlet shops associated with the gardens were way too expensive for my taste - not that I saw anything I wanted.

It's not a big garden but there was lots to see and it showed signs of being loved and cared for. We saw at least three gardeners hard at work. I know they were asking for volunteers but we didn't ask whether they were being paid. It also has two places where we could have a coffee and cake although they did show signs of being a bit too trendy for someone's tastes.

This should be a link to the same photos but as a slide show. Could someone let me know whether you can see it - I can, but then it is to my own log in.

Thanks Lynne. I'm hoping that it will also work for some elderly friends I've sent it to. They all have difficulty if they have to do anything more than click on a link.

Kilver looks lovely, I have not been in a few years.  The slideshow worked but I had to allow Adobe Flash to get it to show.

Thanks for the slideshow comments. As Jane says, it looks like it needs Adobe Flash on your computer to work - which  is obviously why some of my elderly friends can see them but not others.

I'll have to see if I can find a method that everyone can see without having to upload something technical. Putting lots of individual photos into an email is rather time-consuming, especially as I shall soon be sharing the photos we took while on holiday.
