Lovely pics - your lupins are wonderful Lesley, love cairnsie's clematis, and LBennetts plot is looking productive already (love the dark blue campanula too).  And fairy has a new pet.

Been hot here too - only just finished the watering

Last exam went "ok" thanks .... And at last they are all over for another year.  As you can tell, exams make me stressed even when I am experiencing them second hand .... You can only imagine how bad i was when i was actually doing them myself

Think it might be time for bed soon - feels like it has been a bit of a manic week

Morning all   And another lovely one it is too

Car is now loaded with plants for flooded gardens - meeting up with someone from Somerset in Waitrose carpark on my way to work to send them on their way.

Survived the treetops !! Wasn't too bad at all - my freaking out last time was obviously parental anxiety rather than fear of heights - even quite enjoyed the tarzan swings and zipwires

Fergus Garratt was inspirational - a really warm and funny speaker - and his photos of the Great Dixter borders through the seasons were gorgeous.  Really clever the way they get the wild untamed look, and yet it is all so meticulously planned.  And the work they are doing training young gardeners is really a fitting legacy to Christopher Lloyd.  Great evening.

Last science GCSE for littlest Chicklet this morning ..... And then different sort of parental anxiety will be over for another year

Morning Fairy, and Forkers yet to emerge

To get me through the day I have an evening with Fergus Garrett to look forward to (local garden club) - am hoping he will be inspiring
