Quote of the day:
In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.”

Yes, it was cleverly planned and is a very popular destination round here. They do alter the planting from time to time, but the well-chosen trees and shrubs remain a very successful backbone to the area and of course get bigger and better each year.
What a good idea to make the planting list pdf available. Thanks for sharing!
Definitely, especially since the list is subdivided into helpful categories and illustrated! (It is what I like about the Chelsea flower show too)
So gorgeous! Is that first shot taken during spring or summer?
All the photos were taken last week … so winter! It is lovely to linger at the lowest point, totally surrounded. It is like an inverse auditorium.
I wish we lived closer. ( Garden envy).
No need, with Croome nearby I think, but I recognise how luck I am too.
