A group of seven Garden Club members from just outside Henley visited the garden this morning. We had good spring sunshine and the hour and a half they spent here just seemed to fly by. Apart from a couple of bent hellebores, the garden has recovered from Sunday’s snow and a couple of new things were in flower this morning for the visit. Interestingly, the plant that caused the most interest wasn’t even in flower – the pileostegia on the garage wall (I posted a picture of it on here last autumn with a tag September if anyone is interested).

Thanks to everyone for their good wishes for today. I’m off for a well-earned rest on Saturday – two weeks of botanising in Kazakhstan (and no doubt several more on the ’want’s list afterwards)

Glad it went well - hope you've got someone to look after all those lovely plants you bought - or did you get them in? Have a good holiday. I thought about you - we have had a wet day here!

They were all planted a LONG time ago spritz. Nothing sits around in a pot for long here unless the weather is really bad.

Just had a phone call from our Yellow Book County Organiser. Can I go with her and give a talk in May? When is it? Four days before you open. Talk about slave driver - lol

Ha ha - serves you right for having a wonderful garden! Seriously, what a compliment to you. What is the talk - how to be a Yellow book garden?

Sort of. The organiser is going to talk about the scheme in general and I'm to talk about my experiences as a gardener opening for theYellow Book. I'll need to go through my pictures I think for a 'before' and 'after'. Just as well I took some when I moved in

And I am forced to have a holiday in Henley every year! But I do like to see how the sensory garden next to the playpark in "The Meadows" is progressing. It is small, but I really like its design. Yes, Andrew, you must remember us and take some plant pics. Enjoy!
