I always enjoy a tour around your estate Ob, so many areas to admire, couldn't choose a favourite part, I could get lost for hours in so many places...

Your garden is a real credit to your hard work Owdboggy. I always enjoy a look around - there is so much too see and admire. Thanks for taking the time to show us around :)

I started off choosing favourites but there are too many Its all amazing. Great collection of geums especially Mai Tai and I envy you your John Downie. We planted on at our last but two house but the new owners have removed it.
All this house moving is no good for gardeners.

A wonderful tour yet again.

Absolutely wonderful ... what a wide and varied selection of plants you have ... a real credit! :o)

What a smashing selection of plants you have, do you do all the work yourself and post such extensive blogs!

Just me and my wife do it all. There are advantages to being unemployable, even if the money is not good.
Glad you enjoyed the plants.
