Thanks Nut - its not in my garden, so won't be able to take more pics, but it was about a 2 ft mound shape.

Loved the blue too, Patsy.  It was in flower today, but not sure since when, or how long it will go on.

Brilliant pics Beau - really captures it well.  So pleased the sun shone for us

Oh Dove, you poor thing ((hugs)) - hope you get some sleep tonight with all those bruises.  Broke my arm a few years back - the not being able to drive was the worst (apart from hitting ctl-alt-del on the pc, which could only be achieved by holding a wooden spoon in my mouth).  Take it easy whilst it all heals.  

Great pallet train Ggirl - those Sholing passengers are lucky peeps.

Home again now from my Oxford adventure - will post pics on the gardens visited thread (i know it was work, but my coffee break felt like a garden visit) - but here is where i stayed

 And here was the view from my room
