Yesterday, nutcutlet and I went to see a small but exquisite garden on a modern estate.
When you first enter you are in a small vestibule formed by a Portugese Laurel (Nut will correct all my mistakes on plant names I hope) There are some wonderful Hostas in this area
and glowing bamboo
Then the larger area;
with a small pond,
Then even more unusual hostas
This one has a twisted form to the leaves
Miniature Hostas! I didn't know there was such a thing.
Rob the gardener here then very kindly gave us cool drinks and showed us the estate allotments (every estate should have this!)
delicious black beans possibly Italian
I think this is a homemade polytunnel; brilliant
artichoke now useful for a flower arrangement
Canes fastened with plastic bottles
