It was a lovely day and a great pleasure to meet Dan and his wife…… the garden,well, what word would I use to describe it……Unique.
Have put a few pictures on, but they will certainly not do it justice, OH and I loved it.


They should consider opening for the NGS, so much to see, and so much achieved in just a few short years.

Thank you for showing us. As we discovered it is very nice to meet up with other Goyers. I'm so pleased the weather was so good and everything looks so well cared for and interesting. Love the tree fern.

Dottydaisy thankyou so much for the praise. It was great to meet you on Sunday.
You never know if people will like your garden or not. When its your own garden you know what is right as well as what is wrong. You worry about the things that have finished flowering and wonder if people will feel cheated that not everything is in flower.

My wife thought it was funny that you asked to see her dads garden. She wont shut up calling me dad.

Please let us know when you pick your date for the NGS opening.

I agree - Dan, go for it! You shouldn't have any problems with getting into the Yellow Book. :-))) How nice to meet another GOY-er. It's been a pleasure for me to meet quite a few now.

Sorry for those that havnt seen pics of the badger before, he is made from recycled chicken wire from a thatched cottage. I didnt make him I wish I had the skill.

Sorry Dad...Dan!! she looked so young, when you get to our age everyone looks young enough to be your daughter/son lol
So pleased you all like the photos, a very photogenic garden, will let you have the dates for next year as soon as we decide what month to open.
