We went on Tuesday and really enjoyed it - but then I always do
We found it wasn't as crowded as usual, which is a bonus, and thought the floral marquee was excellent. Only complaint we had was the smell in the rose marquue was quite overpowering (and it wasn't of roses) - so we didn't spend long in there
Yvie - Love Hidcote ....and love Kiftsgate even more looking forward to the pics too. Glad you had such a lovely birthday treat
Lovely flowers Runny - can almost smell them from here. Love flowers in the house but can't normally bring myself to raid the borders - so the wind did me a favour really.
Your garden is looking great Dewdrops - what a lovely place to sit
Footie is a bit tedious ....give me tennis any day
Brilliant match. And all the right results too
been very windy here today - some of my delphiniums got toppled .....but its an ill wind etc etc
We googled him yesterday LilyP. Lives in Abu Dhabi and comes back each year to be on players box duty. Tough work, but someone has to do it
I like Cash. We once had a goldfish called Pat Cash in his honour
But my all time favourites were McNamara and McNamee. Especially the latter

Disco Inkernow made me lol
Right, sofa secured, F1 banished from my screen, cuppa in hand .......COME ON ANDY
Sunglass smilie is for later - drizzle here now. At least we know the tennis will happen come what may - that roof was a good investment Everything crossed here.
Will have to uncross in a moment though, as going out to take some cuttings from my new agastache - lost them all last year, so this year I need backups.
Did my potting up yesterday (finally) - 30 echinacea, 30 foxgloves and 30 assorted others take up much more space in pots. Had to extend my "nursery area" ......added another pallet. Ggirl would be proud of me
I'm visualising hard keep getting distracted by visions of pdoc charging in to his stream to rescue ducklings .......but those are positive distractions all the same. 🐥🐥🐥🐥.
Seem to be missing the rain here, so about to get out there for a couple of hours. Many, many plants simply begging to be potted on. Will come back in for the tennis though.
Drove Chicklet to the airport yesterday - visiting a friend in Berlin. First time she has flown on her own ....mucho stress. I had to laugh when she said that all the times she has flown before she has just followed us, not taking the slightest notice of what was going on, and wondering what everyone was getting quite so tetchy about ......and now she knows. My baby is growing up
And here is a link to the Helmingham Hall outing
