  1. Oh I can see some familiar friends Rona :) That rubus looks rather tempting. Off to find out more forthwith.

    1. Hi Anna, woefully behind reading other blogs, I will get there, hopefully. The Rubus is well worth growing, hardy and lovely big flowers. It grows to 5-6 feet with flowers up to 3 inches across. :)

  2. I noticed your name on another blog and was intrigued so came over for a visit. Beautiful photos! I have just moved to a climate where I can at last plant my English inspired garden so I think I will come over for more visits in the future.

  3. Hi Cath, thank you for visiting and commenting, good luck with your garden plans, we have such a varied climate here in Scotland, sometimes it varies by 10C a day, sunshine and heat one day, cold and hails stones the next. But it does mean we can grow a huge variety of plants :)
