Day 60 of Hartington Virtual Open Gardens and the photos today are from Brad and Val’s garden all decked out earlier this month for VE Day 75. Tulips in the spring sun, ceanothus amd clematis climbing the cottage walls and the pots waiting to bloom into their annual burst of summer colour.

Thanks to all those who have contributed over the past two months, over 40 different gardens have now featured.

Daily updates will continue until at least June 1st after which it may be necessary to reduce postings to once or twice a week unless more photos, particularly now repeat visits to see how gardens have developed through the spring, are sent in.

Photos can be sent to, max 5 per post with a short commentary.

The next garden will feature at 9.00am on May 31st
