Front bed's  coming along slow but sure Lily   I'm not really sticking to the whole plan, as I keep coming across things I hadn't thought of, but I am sticking to the colour scheme, which is eggyolk- yellows, plums and rusts with some purply blues - and quite a lot of blue foliage. 

The clematis are shooting up

Did you start them off a bit early and they became etiolated and drawn out due to warm temperatures and low light levels?  It looks as if once they got planted out they grew away normally

Bressingham Gardens are open 10.30am - 5pm

There's a quite complex pricing structure so it's worth having a look before we go to work out whether you want to pay for train rides as well
