|The entrance to Pablo's Garden|
Progress is being made - thanks to lots of help from my sister, Heather and friend Elaine. Still got a way to go but we'll get there in time for the NGS Open Day on Sunday 6th July 11.00am - 4.00pm (apparently the same day as the Men's Final at Wimbledon - oh dear!)
|The glory of the rose|
The Philadelphus is glorious and is blooming slightly earlier than usual due to the mild weather. Fingers crossed that it will have retained some colour for 6th July. Again, the perfume is delightful and it is a pleasure
to be working in the garden, surrounded by such a blossoming abundance.
A new departure is the stumpery which almost looks as if it has been there forever. It still needs some work on it and I've just been to my favourite nursery at Eggleston Hall to buy a few new additions - mostly ferns - of which more later.
The borders are filling up after the demise of the bluebells and forget-me-nots.
