17 May 2019 – Our gardeners have been very busy here at Mayfield and we will have another harvest, the salad leaves next week. Lots of other vegetables are growing and our fruit bushes look good as well. There are are even more lowers blooming now – see how many different ones you can count.

There are also lots of flowers blooming in our grounds – more photos have been added to the slideshow.
28 February 2019 – The lovely weather we’ve had in late February has kick-started spring in our grounds. What new flowers and creatures have you spotted? We’ll be adding more photos in the next few weeks so please check back.
