    We went to David Austin roses near Birmingham over the weekend. Fantastic display from this climber... think we may be going back in a month or so!

    Nothing compared to the prestigious gardens mentioned in this discussion, but Papi Jo's garden was open to visitors last week-end and had a modicum of success with 170 visitors over 2 days.image

    All the details, photos, slideshow of the event, etc. on my garden site at http://www.rezeau.org/wp-garden/en/170-visitors-in-papi-joes-garden/

    Should you travel anywhere near my place in Brittany (near Rennes) you are most welcome to come for a private visit (on appointment). Either PM me on this forum or e-mail me at my e-mail address to be found at the foot of pages on my garden site.

    Best wishes for your forthcoming "open garden day", BL. Hope your condition gets better and also that you get some nice rain and cooler weather for the well-being of the plants! Thanks for the link to the opengardens-eu site.

    In the middle of a very busy spell at work I sneaked 2 hours off to visit the Manor House at Upton Grey in Hampshire.  One of the most beautiful gardens I have ever visited.  Its owner, Rosamund Wallinger, bought the house in a derelict state 30 years ago.  In researching the history of the building they discovered it had a Gertrude Jekyll garden, of which the bones still existed.  They tracked down the plans (in a Californian Museum) and set about recreating it.  So its history brought to life, as well as being an enchanting space.  Very special image
