Today we are in Devon at the RHS garden called Rosemoor. It is a lovely spring day and the magnolia are looking glorious.
There weren't too many plants in bloom yet, and the gunnera which will be enormous by summer was only just starting to burst upwards.
We then got to the fruit garden and the time, effort and skill that went in to the pruning was incredible. "This is the best pruning that I have ever seen!" I muttered excitedly to Darren.
Unfortunately it was obvious that he was very underwhelmed, and even I can see that he does have a point.
All too soon we had walked around the whole garden, although much too long for Darren I think.
Hopefully this holiday will improve for him tomorrow.
