Sorry, I don't know, there weren't labels on them.
Obelixx, the tree below the birches is definitely Prunus serrula. My guess is that the one above is another birch, whose trunk has been lovingly cleaned up by someone. Maybe Betula albosinensis var. septentrionalis, the Chinese red birch. Absolutely stunning, as you say!
Thanks Liri. I can get the prunus near here in a range of sizes and prices but only betula Jaquemontii and that starts at 35€ for a diddy one! Prunus it is then. Maybe a wee grove of the white betulas for my birthday. Now there's a thought. Just right for autumn planting too.
I had already started a 2017 garden visits thread ......its here
....just so it doesn't get lost in the ether. Perhaps Nora could close my one down now, so we only have one on the go ?

Missed that one Chicky. Not keen on the gaudy tulips but really love the Collector's garden and stumpery.
Any more pics of Keukenhof this year?
Will have to investigate photobucket for my Keukenhof pics - the Arundel ones took me an hour to load on here, and I haven't had that sort of time to sit down and faff since we got back Its a shame, coz the photo threads used to be one of my favourite parts of the Forum
I like photobucket Chicky. Easy way to share photos with friends and family and on here if you have more than 2 or 3. It helps to organise them in a sequence you like in your own folder and then just go and have a cuppa while that uploads to Photobucket.
Here are the Picton Gardens near Malvern last September - http://s211.photobucket.com/user/Obelixx_be/library/1609%20Picton%20gardens?sort=2&page=1
Just in case Busy gets a chance to visit while she's there for the flower show.
Sorry we missed your garden visit thread, Chicky. Maybe you, or someone could put this one's link on it. I'm on the iPad now as we are about to leave Norfolk for Malvern.
Obelixx, I used to use photobucket but when our French Internet got so bad it became difficult. I often can't look at pics people send by photobucket so I've missed lot of Berghill's photos and some of yours.
I don't think the Picton garden is open at this time of year, it's a late summer, autumn garden.
That's a pity as it has a good little nursery full of tempting asters.
Wooded background, autumn flowers, seated wicker man are lovely Obelixx and I like the way broken flower pots have been used.
