First the owner showed the children the way around...
and then they were free to explore on their own!
They had so much fun, running around the maze of paths and rolling down a grassy bank.
They have been learning to identify some of the wildflowers in the area, so knew all about the daisies, buttercups and cow parsley they were running through. We find lots of fun resources for learning about nature on the woodland trust site http://www.naturedetectives.org.uk
Several of Overbury's gardens will be open to explore at the Street Market in July http://www.overbury.org/streetmarket/. If you half as much fun as the children did exploring this orchard and garden, you should have a good day out!!
