27/06/19 - Sun is out, yay! These Day Lilies opened this morning before I left home. I’ve just finished this afternoon my last of four RHS exams this week, and no more now till early 2020!! No rest just yet though, off to Hampton Court in the morning to help put together the display for the National Collection of Ginkgo this weekend ready for the opening event next week - it’s gonna be sweltering hot so hope I don’t cook in the heat 🥵

Suns out, funs out (or is that guns 💪🏼 🤷🏼‍♀️😆) thank goodness the exams are over now hun & all you’ve got to do is wait for the results. I’m sure you’ve smashed it. Look forward to seeing you next week. Hope you’ve got your outfit sorted 🤪🤪

Thanks Barbara 😘 - gonna be exhausting but worth it, not sure if I’ll ever get the opportunity again, and it’s a great team so we should all have a good time. Plus first time going to HC so that will be fun too 😁 @jacaranda

Aw, we need another meet-up soon Lin, it’s been too long since the last one (was it really as far back as Chelsea 2017? 😳). Well have to try sorting something out over the summer/autumn perhaps 👍🏼 @linfoster

😂 guns out for sure! I know, really didn’t enjoy these ones at all, and it was worse as it’s now summer and it’s hard to focus on revision when all you want to do is be outside 😩. Well see what the results are like, I’ve concluded I much prefer winter exams! Looking forward to next week too, is it Tuesday your going? @lexijane

You’ll love it, Rich. A friend did a HC garden many years ago and had a great time. She got a bronze medal and was absolutely delighted. I think that was the last time I went to HC 😢 What days are you helping out? 😘

😂😂 bless you, it’s stressful enough with the heat & stuff to do in the garden. You can tell me all about it when I see you. Im hoping to sign up to repeat the Principals of horticulture level 2 😬. Fingers crossed Tuesday but just waiting to hear from Sharon x
