good morning all....well the garden is as ready as it will ever be and today is for last minute shopping etc for the refreshment side of things. Hope you forkers enjoy a Pimms. Others are doing "cakes", whatever they are! Also all the garden openers are congregating here in the evening for a relaxing party, hopefully in the garden.
The weather forecast keeps changing, so I won't tempt providence. Thanks to Gg , Chicky and Panda for the support on here and anyone else who can come tomorrow, 10 'til 5 .... 14 great gardens, and if you can do that lot, you are a gardening star. The pub and our fantastic village shop are open ( Shop 'til 2); parking signposted behind the village hall. Village is in the New Forest and is very beautiful, but not touristy tacky at all. End of advert!
Finally sorry to hear your news Dove, which puts everything into perspective, but also underlines how important our gardens are to us all. My wife still hovers at my shoulder, and all my decisions have to be approved by her. She always said she would see the garden through my eyes, and that is motivation enough.
See you later....
