  1. I was admiring some of these photos on your Flickr page earlier. Unfortunately I live the other end of Europe so I definitely shan’t be visiting the Garden but thank you for sharing these lovely photos.

  2. Who needs a garden if you have a beach-chair like this. I’m sure it comes with buzzing bees and cocktail drinks too:-)
