Gardens we have visited 2016

Posted: 07/07/2016 at 12:45

Lovely pix chicky. I've been to Hampton Court - but just to visit it and the garden, not for the show. 

Think the Iris is one of the Chrysographes types. I have them by the pond. They're stunning - and very easy. Just need a damp spot with a bit of sun  

The small gardens are so much more 'accessible' for most people. Many people have a plot that size and small gardens are infinitely harder to get right than bigger ones, because you simply don't have the space to have all sorts of different areas and ideas. Every plant or fixture has to earn it's keep. 

That one is lovely. Gorgeous summerhouse in the second pic

I'm surprised you got through to anyone at HMRC/Inland Revenue GWRS, another part of The Government that isn't fit for purpose 

Slightly concerned about ppauper's 'buns' activity...or have I picked her up wrong?   

Hosta - don't be silly. Politicians having sensible, 'normal' discussions....are you mad? 

They get further and further removed from reality as the years go by, I reckon.

Decent day here but I'm at work. Well I'm having lunch just now. Picked some ripe strawbs. Magpies can't get 'em but the damn slugs are..grrr..  

Looking forward to the Forker pix. Hope Dove wasn't by her lonesome too long...

Pat - this technology lark isn't all it's cracked up to be...

Bubbles or eggs on honeysuckle?...

Delightful little creatures. My eldest loved peeking at them when she was little  

Harmless. Makes a change from some of them!

Morning all/afties Pat. Is it easier with the brushes! 

Oh - the smilies are working now.

Posted on the other thread DD- glad you're fine - or as fine as can be expected. Keep pocketing the wonga...  

What a shame for Wales. I didn't see any news about it till this morning, but when they said they sang Men of Harlech, I had a lump in my throat just thinking about it. Is there any greater sound?  What a credit to their country they all were. 

The tennis is incredible - pity about Jamie inthe doubles. They were terrific in the previous round. Would love to have seen them win.

Have a lovely day out Forker Folk. Look forward to the pix. I'd ask you to bring cake back, but I think that would be a step too far considering the amount of it I've been eating....

Not sure if I should be posting in bold - I see someone was complaining...

Too bad...I'm living on the edge....

Glad to hear you're ok DD. Smilies aren't working, so big smile to you!

Try and get a break too though. Quite right about taking stuff that's important.

Get the best suitcases too....winky face smiley

I need to lie down in a  darkened room now....

What a match!

I need cake now to get me through the rest of the tournament

madpenguin - that is stunning! So effective. You must be thrilled with it. The watering can adds to the effect too. 

It's so easy to just not bother with areas like that, but you've made a really beautiful feature of it. 

Lucky hoggy too

Really beautiful pix Papi Jo, and a superbly laid out border in that first one 

You've clearly spent  a lot of time and effort creating your garden.

I remember now that you said you were going on holiday Flumpy

Hope you had  a good time, and your Dad is ok. We're all fine here thanks

It's all very addictive Eric's Mum! The garden pix thread is really inspirational. 'Real' gardens 

The camera thread is full of all sorts of things - a nice way to spend a few minutes..or much longer!

I don't think you'll be disappointed if you take a look
