    Hello folks image  I've arrived home this afternoon - the OH has done well but the sprinkler is needed on the veg patch.  It was a really lovely day yesterday with new/old friends image  and the gardens were lovely - I think one of the things that stood out for me was some really interesting planting combinations (although there were one or two that I'd not copy).  I've got some pics too, so later on this evening I'll upload them.

    I've unloaded a car full of plants (all being given loadsa tlc Panda) image

    As for now, a mug of coffee is called for, then the unpacking, and to send OH into the village for beer and icecream image

    I think the others have summed it up perfectly, and like Nut, I have enjoyed doing the tour all over again!!  We have just got the internet back after an 'outage' which has meant I have now done no work for two and a half days on the trot image.  But, being offline has had the happy result of my planting up all the lovely gifts I was given.  Of course, I wasn't able to google them for size/spread, but I thought I should just get them in and well watered, and think about design later, as long as they are all okay, I can move them as and when!!

    Yesterday was Compost master's Conference; today a Compost Event just North of King's Lynn, so have not been able to come onto the forum. Glad so many people took pics of the gardens; they were pretty wonderful. BusyB, am so pleased you have ordered Lady Hamilton Rose, I loved the bronze foliage. Am trying to figure out where I could fit her inimage

    Thank you all for such a wonderful day.
