Not a chance! Although a handout given on entry suggested they’d suffered “two bad winters and some illness” and “many changes have had to be made due to flooding and loss of trees” I thought the garden was glorious. Today was hot and sunny and it was delightful to lose yourself in an acre of garden which actually had quite a lot of shade, thanks to some unusual shrubs and trees.
And lastly, what is this lovely blue plant which was growing in the hedgerow as we approached the garden? Both flowers and leaves look rather like Pulmonaria, but it’s massive – must be over 4ft tall. Any ideas?
With many thanks to Mr and Mrs Montrose for generously sharing their lovely garden.
