Blackbrook House Residents Enjoy the Sunny Weather

After all that cold weather (even snow!) in March, it's been lovely to see some nice sunny weather over the last few days and hopefully to continue now spring has finally sprung! 

I think we all feel a lot better when the sun is shining, whether we are outside enjoying it or simply seeing the sun shine through the windows in the morning. The Blackbrook House garden with its wide variety of trees, shrubs and flowers is looking stunning in the sunshine and it will soon be time to get some delicious homegrown vegetables growing in the kitchen garden ready to enjoy in the summer.

Let's hope this sunny weather is here to stay!
