This is the sort of garden I like, Harlow Carr, last August.
Good morning, good heavens I'm first up, unless someone nips in while I'm typing.
Glyn, I chose Harlow Carr from last year's album partly because you said you were going on Saturday, so I hope you have a lovely time. I wonder what it's like in February?
Forecast was for 0° this morning, but it's -6° and frost.
It's 8.30 and the sun is well up. It's a bit misty, but the mist will soon burn away.
This morning I need to pot up all the little plug plants I bought from GC yesterday.
Enjoyed Monty last night - best of the series. It seemed the least practical program of all. A garden as art - an area for meditation and contemplation. Monty, in his tatty blue rags, certainly looked the part of the bohemian painter.
I intend to do some garden contemplation this afternoon, making good use of the deckchair in the greenhouse.
Morning everyone - wherever you are.
Haven't seen Monty yet, sounds like one to look forward to.
My youngest sister is about to arrive for the rest of th w/e so donkeys keep away as hind legs will be talked off
Have a good day one and all.
Gary,-- Just goes to show how much peoples opinions differ. I thought last nights French Gardens was the worst one of all in the series. Didn't know whether we were watching a programme on French impressionist painters or gardens. The only garden I really liked was Monet's and then it had an English Head Gardener. We visited it a few years ago, and yes it is beautiful especially the water gardens, but give me an English garden any day of the week. But it is only my opinion, so pleased you enjoyed the programme. Vive le difference. Lovely picture of Harlow Car, now that is a garden
Enjoy your day forkers, make the most of the mild weather, set to get cold again next week.
Monty's program was certainly marmitelike. I can imagine many people thinking that it was dreadful. But it was thoughtful, which is what I like. Monty asked many of the people in the program - can a garden be art. It's a really good question. It's a question that was certainly on Monty's mind, and mine. Anyway, I shall contemplate the answer further, and at lengh, from my deckchair.
