Love the hydrandgea pani-wotsit - only one bloom, but what a whopper.  And now i can see why Queen Vic gives you a smile that lasts all day

Swoon swoon ..... Waiting more pics with anticipation.  Even the upside down one looks perfect now I have learned how to lock the screen of my IPad.  I could sit and watch that all day

What's the star in your garden right now

Thanks all .  Vicky - I'm a gladioli convert - already planning some bright red ones for another spot in the garden next year.  Will have to change my avatar to Dame Edna

Wow - what a spread.  Glad you had such a lovely time.  Visited Blickling many moons ago (chicklets were in a double buggy) - it was where I first saw sidalceas (had to ask what they were).  Am i remembering rightly that it has a fantastic yew hedge??

Morning Bekkie .  You need to invest in an oven with a timer to cook OH's chicken itself.

Arch sounds great Panda - looking forward to pics - things are always special when someone makes them for you.  Envious of the tree too - did you see the avenue of them at East Ruston?

Work for me today - but doesn't look like I am missing a garden day.  Can we have some warmth back please ? Fingers crossed for that Indian Summer

Great thread - the "places I must visit" list keeps getting longer

Lots of new plants to learn about

I agree the first one is a grevllilia - we had one here when we moved in and I took a sprig to Wisley for an ID.  That was in the days before I discovered the Forum
