Actually did some gardening today! Removed annuals and weeds from cherry tree bed so now it's ready to be planted with tulips. But it did rain on me before I'd finished.

That blue one with the bee in it is phacelia which is good for green manure which you dig into the earth. The flowers last a long time in a vase too.

This isn't really a garden, but as it's November we thought we'd visit the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum instead, which was very interesting, although hardly anyone was there on such a chilly day! The new programme "Tudor Monastery Garden" was filmed there.

And the beds looked lovely in Anne Hathaways cottage garden, although it had just rained.

Even if the photos are just snapshots I enjoy looking at them months later and seeing how it was. This, of a garden in Stratford-upon-Avon, looks really bright now in November, it was July 2011. Oh bother, the oak tree say "service unavailable". Will try again in a new post.

Morning all. Cold, 3°, and gloomy. But the trees are looking pretty in their autumn dresses.

Visiting Wonderful Gardens

I love visiting gardens and we usually manage to see some each time we go to England and buy plants to take home (France). Earlier this year I started a thread with photos of gardens we have visited.

Good to hear from you again, Artjak. Wondered where you'd gone.

That's what I think it could be, too.

Hi Lizzie - did you make it to the Weald and Downland museum?

Yes, we did. It was very quiet as it was a Thursday and they were preparing for a fair at the weekend. Also cold and windy, but very beautiful and interesting. Then watched the programme "Tudor Monastery Farm" on i player, lovely to see it in summer, in action.

Back from visit to England. Lawn very long, but sodden. It's rained until the last 2 days here when it turned cold and frosty. Think we had better weather in Sussex! Snow forecast mid week. Want to plant my tulips, but will have to wait.
