Wonderful pics Artjak - i have never been there at the right time to see the meadows in their full glory - absolutely spectacular  Can you imagine having that (and all the rest of it for that matter) outside your back door.  The gravel garden is pretty special too.

and what a happy lot you all look - lovely

Lily - its a phlox - think its bight eyes.  They do well for me here, so are the bedrock of my midsummer garden - good job they come in lots of colours

Fairy - its looking fab, fab, fab  All that work is really paying off - you must be so pleased.  I remember the "before" pics, so know just what a difference you have made - you're a star

Love liatris too wintersong - dramatic flowers that hang around for ages.  Whats the little tangerine flower in the first pic ??  Whatever it is, its going on my list !!

lovely upcycling lesley - love a bit of quirkiness in a garden, especially when its your secret

Got my Dad staying for the weekend and he wants to visit a local GC (sister has a birthday coming up!) so might mosey along there later .....
