"The first purpose of a garden is to be a place of quiet beauty such as will give delight to the eye and repose and refreshment to the mind."
Gertrude Jekyll, A Gardener's Testament.
Hi Amalee,Smashing photos, but it does look very rainy! I live in Derbyshire, too. So I can sympathise. Thought you might like a look at some daftness I created over the weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuZJ2nx6VXUIt's on my blog if the link is troublesome. You'll need your speakers on.RegardsM
Great pictures. I especially like the rocks. I love to collect stones, and usually I have to go away from where I live (Texas, USA) to find any good ones! I always find them up in the Pacific Northwest, where I am orginally from.
Jan, I've left a really cheeky comment on yr blog. Now I'm off next year to do the East coast to the West coast tour, and I fancy having a drive down the Pacific route into SanFran. Frances Mayes has a lot to answer for! What do you think? And I fancy having lunch at Chez Panisse, and a Claifornian vineyard... any suggestions?Amalee
