Glad you had a good day Dove, so did we. Beth Chatto's garden was lovely, a damp garden with ponds and a dry gravel garden. But why did I think it would be bigger? Website said 7 acres but it didn't feel so big. Bought a very blue sea holly, a salvia I haven't seen before, a spirea with red flowers and Solanum Glasnevin. Then we went to another nearby private garden called Green Islands, where they do garden course days. Lovely too. I bought a lysimachia "Beaujolais" - Verdun's fault!
Then we went to Dedham, very pretty village, lovely church, and Flatford Mill where Constable painted "The Hay Wain". The heavens opened and we got soaked!
