Look at wonderful Remembrance Garden created by our gardeners Brian and Charles!
In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies growing in battle-scarred fields to write a now famous poem called 'In Flanders Fields'. After the First World War, the poppy was adopted as a symbol of Remembrance.
The garden and veranda really is our pride and joy here at Donnington and it is always changing and blooming. New metal birds have been added to the trees and we have lovely feature areas that are just bursting with colour. Our kitchen herb garden is also looking healthy and fresh as well as being just the right height for wheelchairs.
