The weather on Sunday was wet and windy, but that didn't stop 65 people turning up to visit the garden, numbers were down from last year when we had 200, but that was because of the wet and I can't blame them.

Forgot to take photos, to busy serving tea and cake indoors.

Thank you all for the lovely comments.

This for me is the only way to grow hostas, as the ones in the garden get eaten alive, even with a hedgehog helping out with the slugs.

Busy trying to keep everything up together for our opening on Sunday, part of The National Garden Scheme, hoping for lovely weather.

When I get 5 minutes I am going to get some seed heads and arrange them, as Katherine W makes it look so pretty.

Off to prune 54 roses now, bye

Beautiful Victoria Sponge, all looking so lush. Struggling here in the south west as we are not getting much rain and everything is going over so fast.

Mind you having a lot of pots is not making things easy for myself.

Susan Porter the white tall flower is Physostegia Snow Queen, I didn't know it was called the Obedience plant, I have just tried to turn a flower and I cant do it.

The hedge hog sign is actually made from pennies.

green fingered finch the pink flower is a Penstemon and comes up every year.

Just finished gardening for today, still trying to get ready for opening next Sunday.

I need Lily Pilly seating area, right now
