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.

Misty sea and daffodils – lovely, Gilly.
Ah, Sidmouth! I have fond memories of that café, as you say, great cakes! And Jacob’s ladder….
Makes me want to be there right now, Gilly. 😍
oh you are so lucky to have this within striking distance . . . .
I’d love the little snow lantern in the first image, it would look perfect in my courtyard. The lamppost on the other hand looks a bit dodgy – all that rust could cause it to snap at any time! But the final image is my favourite – what a fabulous view. And did you mention cake?
Talk about temptation! Meet you both there 🙂 🙂 Oh, I forgot, Jude- you’ve given up cake! I bet that’s why you’re grumpy 🙂
Is she grumpy Jo? We’d soon sort that out!
