Morning

Feeling better - hooray- lazy morning reading magazines, then a potter in the garden this afternoon..... Perfect .

Plant id - looks like pulmonaria but the leaves are wrong

Many thanks all - never knew comfrey could be so spectacular - only know it as an ingredient for homemade (smelly) plant tonic.

Woody - made a day of it and went to Kiftsgate too.  Saw THE rose, although obviously not in flower - its a monster - fills a whole border and three trees.  Loved the garden and the views - although not for the faint hearted.  Assume their gardeners are armed with climbing ropes and crampons

Welcome back Woody - great to hear from you again.  Glad hortsoc is going from strength to strength, and new garden plans sound v. exciting

My WW astrantias are flourishing, and will be let loose in the garden in the next couple of weeks

Does anyone know what this is ?  Growing in profusion in the shady damp bits of Hidcote today - love the colour....

Count to ten (twice) MrsG - you're a bigger hearted person than her.  So glad the lost ring is found, and Ma Verdun is getting a night out.

Just back from Hidcote and Kiftsgate - both remarkable in very different ways - had a wonderful day (lemon drizzle passed muster).  However anyone dreamed of making a garden on a cliff face escapes me - but i am very glad they did.

HELLO FORKERS!
