It was a busy day at Great Dixter with the Dachshund Fun Day in full swing from 11 am until 3 pm. There were a lot of Dachchunds there today but also many other dogs. I tried to get a count of dogs but as they were coming and going, it was tough to tell…I would say close to 150 dogs overall and it was well run by Aaron with help from Perry, Thomas, Simon, Lewis, Hayden, Holly and other folks from Great Dixter. Seeing all those cute “sausage dogs” was quite interesting and I didn’t see any fights (just minor conflicts). I’m amazed at how busy the gardens are on the weekends but not surprised. I think with the event today, the cafe, gift shop and nursery probably all had increased sales. The gardens probably saw more traffic as well. Some of the highlights are further below. I did get my morning walk in around the gardens and headed in to town for some supplies as well. See further below for some odds and ends from today. Back to gardening tomorrow.
