I had been on a photoshoot and passing through Beaulieu High Street and quickly remembered Patrick's Patch from my visit last year. I cheekily parked in Fairweathers and popped over the road to Patrick's Patch.
On arrival in this tranquil space, you could sit a while beside this pretty meadow. Although I am told by the lovely Rachel, who planted the seeds, that there was a mix of all sorts here and not just meadow seeds.
But don't sit too long because you will want to wander around this amazing space called 'Patrick's Patch' just as I did.
This is a site to behold, with full range of vegetables, herbs and salads.
A garden which is maintained by volunteers, school children and a part time gardener.
Be sure to say hello to those who stick around to keep an eye on things.:)
Not only is this a learning garden it is uplifting and inspiring too.
It's worth mentioning that free courses are run here, so it's definitely worth checking the website for details.
'would you like a lettuce to take home with you?'
Gosh home grown lettuce, I can't remember the last time I had the pleasure. So, of course, I accepted gratefully.
So now you know why getting caught in the act isn't as bad as you think!:)
It seems I wasn't the only one visiting today .....
Patrick's Patch is opposite Fairweathers in Beaulieu High Street
