Walk over SSSI area at Leasefield Farm with Don Osbourne of Leasefield Farm and Mike Symes from Devon Wildlife.

This was a last minute activity. Don reported that the culm grassland SSSI at his farm was reaching its flowering zenith - all the orchids were flowering.  To see it we should get down there soon before the horseflies became too numerous. So an intrepid group set off toview the wild flowers.

Afternoon visit to Stone Lane Gardens, Chagford.

from their website:

An enchanting 5-acre woodland garden on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park in Devon, famous for National Collections of Birch trees and Alder trees and the annual 'Mythic Garden' sculpture exhibition. Winner of the Gardener's World magazine 'Gardens to Visit SW' award 2010. The garden has been created over 40 years by the late Kenneth Ashburner, and now a charity has been formed to safeguard this unique collection of birch trees and alder trees. Visit our woodland garden and see the many sculptures, and help support the project by buying an alder or birch tree from our nursery.
