Gardens we Have Visited 2014

Lovely pics of Hever - particularly the one of the sky reflected in the lake.  Fascinating place, considering what happened to Anne Boleyn next

Visited Mottisfont at the weekend - loved it, but only managed 2 pics before the rain came down

Yviestevie - I was also going to suggest St Swithun with Mortimer Sackler .... But Dove beat me to it - so a double recommendation there !  Although i love Shropshire Lad I find that it only really goes with white ... its too peachy to work with other pinks.   Our old friend Gertrude also works as a climber

Morning Dove and snoodle

And great to hear from you Woody - sounds like there is loads going on in your garden at the moment.

Will be away with work for the next few days, so there won't be much garden news to update you with ..... hopefully next weekend normal service will be resumed.  Hope OH remembers to water

Littlest chicklet safely home - and in surprisingly good spirits . A collection of blisters, but a sense of achievement. It was her bronze OL, and she passed. Not sure silver is really on the cards. She and her friends managed to get the life story out of their assessor - a young guy, who is probably still wondering quite what hit him. So maybe not experts with a compass, but many other skills in their armoury

Got home to a parched garden that seems to have missed the torrential rain, so a busy evening with the hose ....

HELLO FORKERS!

Just had a phone call to say littlest Chicklet and her group have got hopelessly lost on their expedition - so not to bother trying to come and pick her up til 2 hours later than the alloted time . Good job i am staying close by, so have not already set off . Think ((hugs)) might be needed. .... And possibly ice cream if Bekkie has any going spare
