Tessier Gardens

I made the mistake of going to football, today!! ;-)

When Nich asked me if I'd like to go with him, I jumped at the chance as I haven't 

been for quite some time. 

It gave me a chance to catch up with Nich and enjoy a few laughs.

The football was dire; I don't think I've ever had to sit through

such an abysmal performance! So enough said about that!

Apart from the fact that had we won, we would've gone to Wembley

and taken part in the final of the F.A. Trophy.

We didn't win.

However, on the way to the football ground we did deviate

and we found ourselves walking down an alleyway, signed posted

to Tessier Gardens.

Well ,what a hidden gem!! 

A lovely little retreat and one to which I'll certainly return.

Still very much clothed in its winter coat, one could sense that

in a month or so, spring will be bursting forth and this little place

 will be alive with colour.

The gardens were given to Torquay Council in 1933 by Mrs Tessier

...a very nice gift, I'd say!  ;-)
