February 2018 at Colby Woodland Garden

Snowdrops at Colby Woodland Garden, Pembrokeshire

February is here and Colby Woodland Garden is open for 2018! The feeling of optimism for this season is tangible.

No dampened spirits

It’s also fair to say it’s been the month for rain and more rain but we can’t let it dampen our spirits so with half-term upon us it’s all hand to the pump.

With all this unfavourable weather it’s been difficult to get anywhere in our wildflower meadows, so our attention has been on finishing touches to the car parks and footpaths. One major change has been the bridge at Cwms, one of our holiday cottages, which has seen a total rebuild from the footings up.

Parkrun sets the pace

The Parkrun which attracts well over 100 runners weekly have been kindly using the small pedestrian bridge alongside the main bridge for the last two weeks.

This weekend’s run will be its first stern test with up to 200 runners tackling the three laps of the garden over half-term. We are proud to host the Parkrun here at Colby Woodland Garden.
