Our garden at The Dulaig is so full of flowers and other life that it is hard to show all of it. Instead here is a little snaphot of what is here now.
Thie beautiful deutzia attracts bees and other pollinaters to feed.
Some combinations work really well, like this Acer Dissectum, paeony, Japanese anemone, Japanese granite bowl....and blackbird. It is The Dulaig after all!
We have had lots of lovely weather this summer at The Dulaig, but even in the rain there are plenty of things to see in our garden.
We have over 60 rose bushes here -how beautiful is this Queen of Sweden rose after a shower?
Here are Lois from Buchlyvie and Joanne from Milngave, two of our very many visitors enjoying seeing The Dulaig garden today for the first time as part of the Abernethy Open Gardens day.
We had a lovely time chatting to them, and to everyone else, about our plants - Stipa Gigantea grass particularly caught Joanne's eye!
Thank you to everyone who came along today. Your enthusiasm made it all worthwhile!
We are busy getting ready to open The Dulaig garden on 13 July for the Abernethy Open Gardens charity event.
We have lots of obviously lovely plants, but I wonder how many visitors will spot this little beauty - an Arisaema which is less than a foot tall?
We are very pleased to have been invited to open The Dulaig garden to the public on 13 July this year as part of the Abernethy Open Gardens Day.
This very popular event is run by Ian and Eric at Auchendean Lodge. Funds raised this year will go to the restoration of Castle Roy, an 11th century fortress at nearby Nethy Bridge.
Tickets cost £6, allowing admission to about 10 local gardens, and can be bought locally e.g. at "Ewe and Me" in Grantown-on-Spey. ...
It has been our absolute pleasure to share our home, garden, love of Scotland and of food, with guests over the past 14 years. The experience of running our B&B exceeded our wildest dreams however we - Carol, Gordon (& The Cake Fairy) - have hung up our aprons for the last time.
Thank you to the wonderful guests from all over the world who have stayed with us. You have given us so many special memories which we will always treasure. Thank you too, everyone else who has supported us: your confidence in us was appreciated more than words can say.
Warmest Wishes to All, Carol, Gordon..and The Cake Fairy x
