The garden is lovely, so much to see in such a tiny space. There are memorials of all kinds, features sponsored in memory of family, and "fairies" hidden around the garden. A delight.

This little garden is out of sight behind the front street. There is a café and you can buy healthy plants at a reasonable price. The man who looks after the garden and sells the plants is friendly and helpful.
