I visited some inspiring gardens and you will get to hear all about them in due course. I'm thinking I might save those posts for the dreary days of winter when we all have more time. I'll give you the movie trailer versions for now.
Hidecote-the home and garden of Major Lawrence Johnston
Upton Grey Manor-the most accurately and fully restored Gertrude Jeykll garden in existence today
Gable House-a quintessential English garden
I'll leave you with an image of the humble corn poppy. The Brits are planting them everywhere in memory of the hundredth anniversary of WW1. It is a moving and poignant tribute.
Posts will be sporadic until the end of summer-I know you understand the call of the garden.
