. . . to mark my return to regular blogging. This is the last local place we visited before moving, Dunge Valley Gardens, in Derbyshire, not far from Whaley Bridge. Its a small narrow valley, cultivated by its owners over some years, and planted with wonderful rhododendrons and azaleas in particular, with pines and deciduous trees too. It is small but beautiful. (Excellent tea room as well!) So sit back, and enjoy the view.
