We loved Trebah too, went in 2011. It rained, but it didn't matter. Sheltered under the huge gunneras!

Mine was a convent, but the teaching was pretty awful, apart from a couple of lay teachers. Didn't really know what good teaching was like until I went to nursing school in London.

We made rock cakes, but I think we made pineapple upside down cake too, and scones and shortbread. Can't remember making savoury stuff.

Chicky, here taboulé (French spelling) is made from cous cous which is made from cooked wheat, like little grains of pasta. I pour boiling water on it and let it cool, stirring with a fork from time to time. Chop juicy tomatoes, cucumber, salad onion and sprinkle with salt and some vinaigrette. The juices will ooze out which then soak into the cous cous when you mix them together. You can add any veg, such as chopped French beans cooked al dente, that you like and herbs. Mint is traditional, I like basil and chives or parsley. You can add dried fruit if you like, sultanas, chopped apricot.

A friend has Summer Song because it looked so lovely, but it hasn't done as well as she hoped. I think blue, like catmint or lavender would go well with orange.

Got Big Courgettes. Recipes, please!

There was a little bit of salad thing left so we will eat it soon. It was a lovely warm day, but getting chilly now.

What lovely colours. Your blues and yellows are beautiful, Chicky. Rudbeckias are much better than mine.

My Lady Emma Hamilton is in a pot on the terrace. I bought 3 pots in the GC sale. Must get another orangey rose to go with her. Anyone have Pat Austin? Or can recommend another? I have Rosa Complicata for the 3rd pot, but it's in a different place on the terrace.

Zoomer, did you wait long enough? Sometimes I have to wait quite a time for pics to upload. Seen Levens on TV. Wonder where Belieze is, must Google it.

Lovely photos, Fidget, thank you.

We are hoping to go to Suffolk next year so Cumbria will have to wait, but it's on the list!
