If you take the coast road from Newton Abbot to Exeter, you pass through the delightful
little village of Kenton. And there you will find Powderham Castle.
The castle is not yet open to visitors . However, there's a lovely little nursery,
a farm foods shop and a cafe
And that's where we called yesterday, as we made our way to Exmouth.
It's funny how a visit to a nursery can get you right into the
'lets get out into the garden' spirit!
Well it did just that... as today...
It's been sunny, all day ; springtime has certainly come early to South Devon!
Although the garden is a little colourless, the birdsong all around us
gave the air a certain sweetness, as Mr S and I toiled and tidied.
It does not take too long to get one's enthusiasm going again!
My greenhouse is ready and raring to go too!
Mr S has definitely chosen the best week to take his hols!
