Visit to Bressingham Gardens Tuesday 20th May

Oh, it's called Foggy Bottom because it's down the slope from where Alan Bloom lived - it used to be water meadows and he would look across there from his house and it the mist would be gathered there - as it does - I think it sounds rather romantic, in a whimsical sort of way

OL - I love them too - especially that set of gallopers - I've been on them many times - it's local to where I lived when my children were young - I think that yesterday was just too hot and there was ice cream to be eaten

Good morning all   

A good night's sleep has been had, but inspection reveals that despite sun cream and hat my neck and upper shoulders resemble a boiled lobster 

OL, don't be impressed - although I am a knitter, I didn't knit that hat - it was a present I've had sitting around a while as it's tight on my head and I don't do 'tight' on my head.

Chicky, so glad you had a lovely time at Chelsea - I was watching MD last night talking about the judging process and one of the judges explaining that he thought that sometimes the public didn't feel the same way about individual gardens as the judges did because they couldn't experience them by being 'in' them, and that on the tv we had the nearest experience to the judges - I wondered how you felt about that? 

Is this all Campanula Portenschlagiana?

I always get confused between those two - but I've got the one that grows back from nothing to 18* tall in a matter of a fortnight!

That's what that  particular campanula does - I pull it all up every year - every year it grows back to look just like yours

We didn't - but I regaled the others with the tale of watching my short and plump late ex MIL attempt to change horses mid gallop and ending up hanging by one leg going up and down and round and round until rescued by attendant    - I used to live just a few miles away.

I understood that AT walked - it had been planned that he and MD should front the show together but AT felt slighted and left.
