Winter in Connaught Gardens, Sidmouth, a little area that’s usually that will soon be surrounded by plants and sunshine.
The gardens are looked after by East Devon District council and they do an excellent job.
There’s a wonderful range of plants, stunning views and through summer the bandstand often rings with the sound of live music of all kinds.If you’ve walked up Peak Hill, to where I took the photo above, or even further to see the daffs,
you deserve a treat. See the white tower above Jacob’s ladder? The building beneath is the café in the gardens. They have lovely food, I have no idea how they make such huge cakes and if you’re lucky, you might be able to sit at one of those windows.
