The Feeling Good Caring Well team recently ran a joint project with the Day Care team and enjoyed a visit to another tranquil garden. This time it was the beautiful and award winning private garden known as ‘Ulting Wick’ near Maldon. Normally only open as part of the National Garden Scheme we were very lucky to enjoy a visit.

After a short history of the gardens from the owner we wandered through a tropical garden, kitchen garden and a secret garden all alive with bees and beautiful butterflies. We then went on to find the many hidden sculptures in the less formal parts of the garden.  

After all this activity it was time for tea and homemade cake served in the shade of the back porch of the house.

Thank you to our Carers for their comments: Well worth the visit; host helpful and informative; enjoyed the other Carer’s chats and laughs; time in the garden was a very happy experience!.
