This has flowered and reminded me of when I bought it on a fabulous #gtmeetup at RHSWisley last year, it’s reminded me of how much of a sanctuary my garden has been and as an extension of that #gardentags too, so thank you all you lovely people for your advice and humour, a fantastic distraction from the real world you will never fully appreciate how much you’ve helped to get me through the most heartbreaking of times. 🙏 #augustblooms

Lol bit of Vaseline on the lens! 😂 I think we had arranged to meet at Wisley on the 19th September, but I’m not sure now if we’re meeting on the 20th instead..? 🤔 can you remember Barbara? @jacaranda

I think it was changed to the 20th as @richard.spicer.7906 couldn’t make the 19th and @clipperty had booked the 20th off work by mistake 🤣🤣 I’m sure they’ll correct me if I’m wrong 🤞 @rachelbrooks @carolecuttingitfine
