    Chicky, so sorry to have duplicated your thread.  I did a search but it didn't come up... didn't think to look in "garden design".  image

    Gorgeous photos. Too many nice ones to pick just one. Love the birches and Prunus, and your tulip pix too chicky  image

    We get bowled over by flower 'arrangements' so often, but textures and shapes are so important in a garden, and I think many of us overlook that. I love small delicate flowers (that alpine house) or the bark on that Prunus. Fabulous.

    I'm not much of a garden visitor so thanks for those pix image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Thanks for the recommendations, Mike.  

    As a child, I played in the Royal National Rose Society's gardens near St Albans.  I grew up a few miles away, and one of my best friends was the daughter of the head gardener.  I can still remember the wonderful perfume on a summer's day, playing hide-and-seek...

    I must go back.  But not to play hide-and-seek, I think.  image

    This isn't really a garden visit, it's a show visit, but there were gardens in it. Last week I went to the Malvern Spring Festival.

    Visited Lea Rhododendron Gardens in Derbyshire last Sunday; glorious display in a lovely natural setting with great views. Well worth it if you're within striking distance. Quick though, they'll be going over soon!

    A small town near me, Usk in South Wales, opens several domestic gardens together in a weekend as part of the National Garden Scheme. The town castle is worth a visit in itself - and there are Welsh Cakes baked on site on the Open Weekend!
