If you come off the M1 at junction 27, take the turn west towards Eastwood. It is half a mile from the M1 on the left hand side.

There is a map on their website.

I have been busy booking a hotel for a party

I did notice that the bluebells were coming out around Annesley.Does anyone fancy a walk in the bluebell woods at Felley priory (Junction 27 M1)  in a couple of weeks?

Last year they were glorious.

Yes, a beech seedling. Nut identified it for me last year when I saw one among the bluebells at Felley priory.

Verdun, I think we should bring back the stocks or the Birch for such attacks. Sometimes I think it is all the thugs will understand.

Today I had a first class delivery of rare unusual plants. This is to replace the rubbish ones sent last year. Last Friday they sent delphiniums instead of the penstemons and phlox that were late delivered last year, and a lot didn't do anything.. Today I got a full set of 20 penstemon and a dozen phlox.  I've finished potting them up. With the survivors from last year I should have enough to fill the garden.

Sheets are out drying in the sunshine.
