English gardens in springtime

Every year, private individuals in Britain open their gardens to visitors in support of the National Gardens Scheme. Unfortunately, they cannot open this year because of the covid-19 crisis. Some have produced video walk-throughs showing what the garden currently looks like, so if you are missing English gardens in springtime, take a look at this:

The beneficiaries of the scheme are nursing charities, which is particularly appropriate this year. If you want to donate, please got to https://ngs.org.uk

The garden shown is at Iron Acton, about 10 miles north of Bristol. It was the site of a mill, so the various streams were probably created to power the mill.

Thanks for the link for all us "armchair travellers". Tangentially on topic, I see some overly-enthusiastic gardeners have given the Cerne Abbas Giant a funny coronavirus makeover.
