Pouring today too. Our picnic was cancelled. Not warm either, not what you expect in SW France.

Lovely pics. Hyacinths are beautiful together, sprig of apple blossom could hardly be more perfect and the tulip is almost like a lovely rose. Spring flowers are so pretty.

Glad you had a good holiday GG. Lovely to see your list. That is one of the troubles with buying plants in France. They sell the varieties but not the named varieties. Sometimes plants are even sold by the French common name, not the latin one. Or something like a penstemon or a delphinium is sold just by colour, not named.

We are going to England in June, but will have to limit plant buying a bit, not much room left!

It poured today, like a bog outside. Some of my little plants had to be repotted, they were out hardening off but rain is washing nutrients out of the compost and they are sodden. One poor nicotiana had rotted. They are back in the GH drying off.

WW Trebah was our favourite too. Such a lovely path winding down to the sea.

Lovely photos, thank you all. Want that blue clematis!

I went to the Keukenhof gardens when I was 14 years old, still remember it well, impressive.

I was wondering about starting a new thread about gardens we have visited and then Blackest said something about putting places on his map so here you are. If you visit any lovely gardens this year what about putting a photo on this thread? If you haven't been anywhere but went somewhere nice last year then send a photo of that. I love looking a gardens - nosy as well!

I'll start with Sissinghurst where we went in April, but, apart from the woodland bit, there wasn't much out yet.

Berberis, as everyone says, and this is a pic of a kerria japonica so you can see what it's like.

This thread is disappearing down the pages and I like it so here's another pic of my garden. Alliums are coming out, bit of a gloomy day!

I didn't know they did self-catering, we went in 2011 for the garden. This is their website
