I can do most dates, but of the 2 mentioned so far ...10th is a really good date for me  so I can come with you Noodle if that's ok.

Last weekend in Aug will be busy getting the garden ready for my holidays. Is everyone else as sad as me spending hours dead heading & staking before they go away so it doesnt look too bad when they get back? - my garden always looks its best the first day of my hols - when I can't see it!!

10th is fine for me - I can do any date in August at the moment (except Tuesdays). My major commitment is 2 weeks hols at beginning Sept - but I won't be offended if you can't go before then (disappointed... - but not offended! )

Having problems uploading pics this pm for some reason - never mind Artjak has covered most of them better than me anyway! Particularly loved the wild flower meadow which was absolutely stunning and the log huts - OH has been shown the photos so he knows how I would like my logs stacked next winter (please). 

Panda will be disappointed that I haven't been able to upload my movie of the wild flower meadow with her wind blowing sound effects in the background 

Beth Chattos is good for me too....

Back home now after a great weekend away - fantastic weather to be beside the seaside & the storms were quite exciting too! Crab, ice cream & beer were all as good as I remember.

The garden was beautiful & inspirational and the company was exceptionally good - 5 such lovely, friendly people - feel as if I've known you all for years, not a few hours.

Artjak has done a wonderful job of capturing the the beauty & the essence of the garden & little Panda clearly enjoyed her travels!

Will try to upload a couple of my pics when I've finished unpacking.

Meantime a really huge thanks to the 5 of you who made for such a great afternoon.

When's the next one?....

... I think perhaps crab ice-cream with a red chilli coulis could make it onto a menu or two ....

Off now - see you all tomorrow (hope not too many probs for you Panda - fingers X'd)
