Just got in from Mottisfont visit - cut short by the rain, but fab whilst it lasted
So many roses crammed in, with other things interplanted. No attempt at year round interest - go in June, when the rose explosion is happening, or don't bother at all!. Will maybe post a pic tomorrow when normal service is resumed

Saw GW too - really enjoyed the Arts and Crafts garden - my favourite sort of style (and plenty of blues )

All packed for a weekend in the New Forest - littlest chicklet has her final DofE expedition, and coincidentally is walking where I grew up !  So I am staying with Dad the weekend, to save all the to-ing and fro-ing.  Hoping to make a trip to Mottisfont Abbey tomorrow to see the roses - might have to dodge the showers.  Will pick some sweetpeas in the morning to leave in a special place to remember my Mum.

Dove - these are the greater spotteds.  We get the occasional green in the garden, but have never seen one on the feeders.

Plenty here KEF - but it was needed.  

Got another baby woodpecker (red head, as opposed to neck) on our peanut feeder.  Lovely
