Over twenty years ago, Tricia and David Alesbury moved into a new home in Worcestershire, UK with one acre of garden filled with nettles and brambles. Over the years they have created a welcoming, colorful and seasonal garden with ponds, woodland, water feature and raised beds. Thanks to David’s photographic expertise, you can see how the garden has developed over the years and how it looks during the seasons today. Lockdown due to coronavirus has meant we have spent three months working on new areas and enjoyed a wonderful Spring blossom season.
