A beautiful falsity

We have two Robinia pseudoacacia – a Frisia, with white flowers at the top of the Glade and this pretty pink one in the Laburnum Walk. They smell lovely as well as looking stunning.

With sunshine for the day, the Gardens were at their best for the many visitors wishing to reflect on D-Day. Maggie had drawn together a fascinating display, giving an overview of the airfield on the estate and with stories of the airmen who manned the planes. For those who missed it, there will be another opportunity to catch the special exhibition at our 21 July Open Day.

Volunteers worked hard, tidying the borders, reshaping the Portuguese laurel in the Italian Garden and cutting back the now untidy edges to the Gardens, where the cowparsley had reigned supreme. In the kitchen garden we are still battling slugs and snails and are hopeful that a dry patch now will allow the veg and dahlias to get going!
