 Splendid Salvias.

 This Hibiscus had an interesting interior with precise 'vents'.

 The approach to the cactus area.

 Am not a big fan of cacti, but I loved the feeling of calm here.

 Weird, a sort of bird's nest effect.

...and more...

 strange fruit.

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/62080.jpg?width=640&height=350&mode=max

 This was like a firework.

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/62081.jpg?width=480&height=350&mode=max

 We were all puzzled by this.

 The g/hs have blinds on the outside.

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/62083.jpg?width=640&height=350&mode=max

 Between the g/hs are corridors where they grow fairly tender plants.

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/62084.jpg?width=480&height=350&mode=max

 We thought these areas may be heated by these vents from the g/hs.

We had a lovely time, I had to leave a bit early as had people coming to dinner and wasn't feeling 100%. Here are some pics;

 You'd need seriously long arms to trim the top of this hedge, it must be 3m wide.

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/62063.jpg?width=480&height=350&mode=max

 loads of different grasses, like this

 and this.

 Snoodle and I liked the spacious feeling between the trees.

 This fountain was very beautiful.

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/62068.jpg?width=480&height=350&mode=max

 Despite it being October there were still many flowers.

 Such a photogenic tree, I know it's been posted already but I just can't resist it

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/62071.jpg?width=480&height=350&mode=max

 The limestone garden was great, we must come in midsummer next time.

 Nut behaving like a chamois

 followed by Dove and Snoodle.

 Would love to know what this is, the labelling is a bit ad hoc here.

Christmas stuff in shop

I went to Morrisons to get raisins for Bramley Apple wine (local farmer said take as many apples as you want - so it would be rude not to). But they had sold out of the cheap ones! C... puds and cakes I suppose

Could it be metal instead of wood? Most towns have some sort of metal worker/blacksmith, at least they do around here.

I will probably arrive early and go into the town centre. So shall I meet you all in Botanic cafe around midday?

Did I review 1500 plants in my sleep?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
