We were at Wisley today as well Scroggin. Probably crossed paths without even realising. I particularly enjoyed the wildflower meadow in the trials area.
Mark - you and Scoggin have had a day in beautiful surroundings.
The wild flower meadow is stunning.
It looks wonderful, masses of flowers. We went a few years ago, it was June, but I don't think it was so colourful. Thank you for the photos.
Thank you all. Glad you had a nice day Scroggin.
Wow - Wisley is looking wonderful at the moment - great photos Mark and Scroggin
Love you photos Chicky, such a romantic garden it would be perfect for filming one of those period dramas.
Wiisley does look beautiful Mark and Scroggin, wonder when I could visit
Apologies, I just realise I should have put a link on here to the Kew Gardens visit. Six of us went last week and I started a new thread as the number of photos might have overwhelmed this thread: http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/kew-gardens-visit-july-2017/1002443.html
Yesterday I went to Birmingham for the afternoon, with no plans to visit any gardens. I went to see the new (ish) Library of Birmingham, and while there unexpectedly found myself in a lovely 'Secret Garden' on the roof. It's open to the public, you just go up to the 7th floor of the library and follow the signs. There's also a rather nice roof terrace on the 3rd or 4th floor. But the Secret Garden is a proper garden, with some lovely planting, plentiful seating for quiet contemplation (or lunch eating!) and is quite large, spreading around two sides of that part of the building. Definitely worth a visit. The library itself is spectacularly gorgeous too.
