Well done, wonky.
I have spent the day walking around Much Wenlock near Telford.
One of the gardens had the most enormous tree peony. It must be 8 ft. Also a Rosa glauca going up a wall, equally huge, up to 15 ft. There was a shrub that no one seems able to identify, I have asked her to post a photo for us. We went on to Roland Breams new garden for his collection of Roscoeas. Amazing what he has done in 18 months. I came away with a Red Ghurka with green stems (mine has red), a cross of his own, and a small pot of seedlings.
Ice creams followed at the Penny Farthing, followed by a glass of cider near the Ironbridge gorge.
Tomorrow I think I have to pick blackcurrants for the freezer.
