Glorious visit to Wisley today are some highlights

 These are all of the long borders - best I have ever seen them

Back from Wisley - glorious there. Pictures will go on appropriate thread this evening. Was followed home by a Black Knight (buddleja) - tried valiantly to fight him off, but we were no match for his armour and sword

Hope Topbird and her magic knickers are having a good time

Recliner, shady ash trees and campari sound a divine combination

Most suitable Climber

The patio series of clematis are goid for pots, don't get too big, and flower freely.  They are Group 3 so easy to look after - just cut to the base in spring.  Raymond Evison has a section on them on his website

Morning all - hope today goes better for Winter, and Pdoc has a great time on his garden visiting travels.  Just about to take littlest chicklet to work, then we are off to Wisley for real this time.  Will take photos

Blue sky here, garden is getting quite dry again - might need to get the hose out tonight.  Next weeks forecast keeps changing from cloud to rain, back to cloud again, so not sure I can trust it to do the watering for me

Cricket watching () put Wisley visiting on the back burner til tomorrow - wheres the best bits Steve?  Got my Dad with us, so will have to plan our route carefully so as not to exhaust the poor guy.

just been for a wander round the garden - there are hundreds of bees and butterflies out there enjoying the flowers and the grasses.  Crickets in the meadow are making a right din too

time for another cuppa I think .....important to keep hydrated
