What a fantastic garden you have, OB. The rock gardens are just lovely. Everywhere you look there is a pleasing aspect.
Straight into favourites. Thankyou for sharing it.

I am soooo jealous of your garden - it's huuuuuge! It must take a lot of looking after but it's very tidy and the greenhouse is very organised. Well done!

That is some garden Owdboggy, and enormous, how do you manage to keep on top?? just you and your wife...
but absolutely stunning, love it. And that greenhouse... green with envy, lush i think fits the bill here
I would never finish my early morning round in that garden, would just keep getting sidetracked, or just stand

Love the individual style of your garden. It must take up a lot of your time to keep in good order. I love the flowers in your cool greenhouses, and the strips of stone with plants in between. They seem very happy there. My sink garden plants are not as happy as yours.
