I'm absolutely loving the bluebell pics, they look so beautiful!  One of my garden ones below...

Orchid Lady - it is indeed an old camper, but unfortunately not on the road at the moment...can't quite afford to get the work done that it needs given the garden needs at the moment.  Had loads of lovely camping trips in the old girl though!

KEF - lovely garden, I have neat lawn and edging envy!  What is the plant in the first photo with the silver foliage?  I have one but never quite sure what it is.

I have some 3 year old blueberries in pots, all with ericaceous compost which I topped up earlier this year.  One of them has leaves which have started to droop.  I checked the compost, and it's moist but not too damp.  I only ever water them with rainwater.  Any ideas on what's causing the leaves to wilt please?  I took out the top 6 inches of compost earlier and topped it up with more ericaceous compost just in case it is lacking nutrients.  The other 2 plants are fine and all have been treated and watered the same way.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks chicky - it's really lovely when others appreciate what you love.  The garden is my pride and joy, and I absolutely love it, I can't quite believe I own it but it makes me so happy. 

star gaze lily, we have walls on 2 sides, the other is a fence but as its behind a well established border you can't really see it.  One of my summer jobs is to do some pointing on the walls.... not sure I'll love the walled garden then

Thanks guys, it's a work in progress but we're getting there. The structure was in when we bought the place but it was massively neglected and overgrown.

As for the tin baths and sinks Star Gaze Lily, what can I say...I collect, hoard, beg and steal (if you count collecting stuff from skips) any kind of junk I can find to use in the garden.

Sounds like you have a busy day planned!  I have no idea what junior wrangling is but it's not great weather for your son to do his DofE, but I'm sure he'll have fun whatever the weather.  You can't beat being outside and tea tastes so much better when you're camping.

The thing is though Busy, you have to virtually drive past the showground to get back to Notts from Horncastle.....it would be a real shame not to "pop" in .
