Look forward to meeting you next year B3

Great pics Liri - the giant mohican alliums were one of my horticultural highlights of the day - must remember to try and get hold of some this autumn

So glad you all made it home safely - not surprised you were tired.  The cafe stop sounds perfect Yvie - must remember that for next time.  

Still smiling every time I think about our day

The other one was in the Waterlily House - in which I survived long enough to take this pic

What a treat not to be heading to work on a Monday 

Brilliant news from DD - sounds like CdeG is going to be the success you deserve 🍰🍧☕️

Littlest chicklet is off to Budapest with some friends for a few days - dropping her off at one of the friends on my way to Kew.  Meanwhile Chicklet is still working out how she can fit her life into one suitcase .....she goes on Wednesday, amd I forsee many packings and unpackings in the next 48 hours

Right, best get a wriggle on

We only had a drummer, two guitarists and a singer, but U2 were AMAZING ...and the swan song with Noel was unforgettable, not a dry eye in the house.  So glad I was part of that era.  Music stays with you in your bones....

Brilliant - well done Lizzie.  Such a lot of work getting a garden ready for visitors (even one as gorgeous as yours ).  Great to hear it was such a success
