We have had heavy rain over the last fortnight which has started to bring the garden back to life. But I fear I have lost a number of shrubs.

Yesterday, the automated gates were completed. So we are now "gated"

You have a remote control in the car or need to know "the number" to get in! Real objective is to keep the ****dy deer out.

The hot weather has meant it has been a great year for the grapes! 
 A yellow crocosmia. Grown in a pot.
