The garden at Stirling dates back more than a hundred and forty years and has the engaging charm of an English-style country garden. The oldest surviving specimen is a giant, gnarled frangipani, which provides welcome shade in the hottest months and no doubt is the keeper of many of the stories and changes of the past 140 years.

… A Garden …

A small plot of earth was chosen to claim, 
To create our garden was the ultimate aim.
Today we walk amongst its beauty and charm,
Our patch of heaven has grown to be shared. 
It's still in the working as most gardens are,
Come along and meet us - there is a garden in us all. 

Deborah and Trevor Lindenberg.
