alpine house photos:
Just realised that i failed miserably to get the labels in - so you will just have to be content with the pretty flowers!!!
Well apart from the shrew, there were some lovely iris/crocus affairs, and some mini nerines. I took photos for you - so i suppose i will have to detach my rear from the sofa and go upload them for you ...... Might take some time ......
Those tyre planters are great - who do you get to cut them like that??
when you talked about tyre planters before i thought you meant that you were making a tower of tyres and planting inside them - your way is far more ingenius
Love it Macavity
Had a lovely afternoon wandering round Wisley - discovered some parts i have never been to before - the meadows behind the glasshouses, the arboretum and the trial fields. Looks like they have just finished a three year trial of phlox paniculata - one of my favourites - will be interesting to see what they have found. Made a special visit to both alpine houses for Woody - had the old one completely to myself apart from a tiny shrew scurrying around - v sweet!
Morning all (although nearly afternoon - i love a good Sunday morning lie - in)
Wisley here i come, for some Christmas shopping and a wander round the gardens - hope the sun breaks through here later.
Agree with Crocus and Hardy's. Have also been very pleased with Burncoose, Sarah Raven and Seagate Irises. Ashridge trees were excellent too
Patty - i think the 10 programmes are every night for two weeks. I will be taping them to stretch them out
Stacey - what a gorgeous pony - what was her name?? We have never made it anywhere near Olympia (other than as spectators) - probably just as well - my heart is in my mouth even at local shows. Mostly i can't look
All very sad here - Chicklet has just had to say goodbye to the horse she has had for the last 3 years - owner (who we have not seen for the same amount of time) decided she wanted him back. Strange how attached us two legged creatures can get to the four legged ones. Lots of tears
