Graham’s Garden

For our Graham, life is what happens when you go outdoors.

Lucky for all of us, that is where his expertise lie, in anything and everything that is the ‘great outdoors’. 

He spends his days here at Cocking Sawmills outside, whatever the weather – you’ve seen that yellow anorak haven’t you?! So when it’s hammering down with rain and a round timber lorry needs unloading Graham is the one out there giving the elements a run for their money and loving every minute!

Then, it appears, when he goes home and is straight out in the garden getting up to mischief growing giant pumpkins or exquisite flowers for our front desk. And if he’s got the gardening out of his system you won’t find Graham inside in front of the telly (unless it’s Countryfile night of course) no, he’s out roaming the countryside checking out mother nature’s handiwork or working with the local guides on charity events and fundraising… often involving homemade cakes from his daughter, the lovely Chrissie 🙂

So naturally he is our go to guy for anything nature related, garden related, weather related, animal related, cake related, wellington boot related… you get the picture.

Over the years, the oh so many years, Graham has been with us he’s been taking snapshots of his garden, of plants and wildlife and we’ve been taking snapshots of him and his exploits too so we thought we’d put aside a tiny bit of the ether for keeping Graham’s pictures and to share them with the world.

We hope you enjoy them.
