Tulips at Dunsborough Park
Back in April 2015, Diddley showed Bobby an advert in the local newspaper for a “Tulip Festival”. It was at a garden he had not heard of. Dunsborough Park at Ripley. Not far from RHS Wisley Gardens. Just about this time, in April. They went and loved it. Particular the charity run garden tea. She became tired quite quickly and they were content to just go round the formal garden. Not realising that this was a much bigger garden. It was also the very last open garden they would ever go to. Just four months later and life changed for ever.
Bobby never forgot Dunsborough Park and the tulips. He been back with friends a number of times. Even written about it in Mindfully Bertie (“Three go to Dunsborough Park Gardens”). Only open a few days a year, the Tulip Festival would be about now. We and all of those who love flowers and gardens will miss the wonderful gardens that are so beautiful in April and May. So we are bringing the Tulip Festival to you from years gone by…
