Garden visit on rare day out

We enjoyed a rare day out at the weekend and visited a hidden gardens - Dunge Valley Hidden Garden - to be precise in the Goyt Valley outside of Buxton.

The gardens have an amazing collection of Rhododendrons and Azaleas etc with some of the plants grown from seed collected by the owners during treks in Nepal.

Although we were out of season for many of the flowering borders, the walks and pathways thru the gardens, including a steep gorge with a waterfall and stream bubbling along it were still worth a visit and the especially narrow lane down to the entrance.

Whilst taking on some refreshment in their tea room, it was obvious from the pictures on the wall of the gardens before they started planting just how much they have changed and moulded the gardens and grounds.

We receive a lot of garden and floral pictures here at Fabulous Photo Gifts from customers personalising everything from Jigsaw Puzzles to glass worktop savers or chopping boards.

Here's a link to their website - www.dungevalley.co.uk but check their opening times if you're thinking of visiting. And don't forget, if you do visit and take a great photograph whilst you're there, then you could use it to personalise a photo gift from us and use it as a present for someone or even keep it for yourself.

i was looking at your glass chopping boards. We've just had a new kitchen fitted and the installer recommended getting some glass worktop savers.

Are these the same thing and do you do any larger?

Hi Anne J.

Thank you for visiting the Fabulous Photo Gifts blog and leaving your comment.

Glass worktop savers it seems is favoured by our American cousins, where as we refer to them as Chopping boards.

Either way, in answer to your query, we have literally just added our newest glass chopping board which is larger than the present rectangular chopping board and measures 30cm by 40cm.

Please click here to see more details of our large personalised glass chopping board and to order.
