Don't post very often, but always follow your thread Marion.  Hope you have a very successful open day on Wednesday - your visitors will love it, there is always so much to see  It is indeed a £1million garden

Ggirl - you broke a crowbar

I thought they were indestructible

Glad to hear operation GH is in progress Is it for the garden, or the allotment?

Well done to all the blue poppy people

And great news that ma Lesley is making a good recovery - hope she will be fighting fit again soon

Did my stint at the Hidden gardens ticket place - about 300 people came today alone - and there will have been more yesterday coz the tickets were valid for both days.  Did a bit of garden visiting too - geum tequila sunrise really caught my eye.  Wish list is growing again.

Came home and did my planting, and now collapsing.  Took the bike, and there is a very big hill between us and the village, which demonstrated just how unfit I have become  Springwatch soon, whilst folding all the washing.  How can two teenage girls generate so much laundry

Morning all - and afternoon to Panda, given you have done half a day's work already

We have blue sky and sun - happy surprise given the black clouds forecast.

went "hidden garden" visiting with littlest sis yesterday - some stunning gardens .....and there was cake.  My wish list has expanded again to include clematis Broughton Bride....just gorgeous

Today I am doing a stint in the box office (for day 2 of the event).  Have a couple more gardens to visit aswell.  Think I will get my bike out for the first time this year, and rediscover my love of pedal power.

then I must do some planting ....paeony bowl of beauty, poppy pattys plum and a few jacobs ladders seem to have miraculously appeared on my doorstep ....and they didn't even have sticky labels

Fairy - airman sculpture was made of layers of thin metal sheet, stacked up with a tiny space between each one - it made it look transparent and ghostlike.  At first we thought it was a hologram and spent a while looking to find the projector ().  We listened to the designer explain - he got his son to dress in airforce gear and they made a lifesize 3D print of him, then used that as the model.

I have never seen anything like it ...quite blew me away
