Thanks for the tour. A delightful garden. I especially like all the areas with rocks and gravel. :o)
What is the plant, please, in the penultimate photo ?

Lucky you, having such a large garden - not to mention sunshine...
I want to know what that plant is too - wish you'd put names to the photographs. Is that a Saponaria in flower higher up in the list of pics?

I seem to recall seeing this garden elsewhere in cyber space ;o)) but as then ....I still think it is a lovely garden and the cottage looks lovely too.

Thanks for the tour!....Tg

What you trying to do to us Owdboggy, my wishlist has just doubled!!!!!. You have a huge garden and I love it, so many diiferent areas to admire, I know it takes a lot to keep a garden that size looking good but I`d be in seventh heaven working there.
Thankyou for the tour, I really enjoyed it....

When I have finished the tour I will go through and label everything, don't fret.
That is a Geum Eos by the way.

I always enjoy a walk around your garden.

Hooray, the names are in place! I can't believe how much you had out at the beginning of the month - everything which had been burgeoning rapidly in March came to a full stop here by mid April, even the wisteria's not flowered yet. Shock of the sudden cold after 'summer' in March I suppose. Lovely to see sunlight and so many flowers... and dry grass, lol!

I really do enjoy looking around your garden Owdboggy -envy just doesn't begin to describe it. Lovely too see all your pretty plants. Thank you!

Dry grass Bamboo! - I don't think I've cut my grass so many times in the first quarter of the year ever - it's usually too wet to cut for the most of April - yet I had to cut it 4 times last month!!

Sounds like you need to lower the blades, Scottish, lol!
