Linda and I both enjoy browsing around garden centres even if we don’t need any plants for our gardens, and of course if there’s a good cafe…. well that’s even better. We have our favourites, and last week we headed off to Merryhatton and Smeaton’s in East Lothian. I’m just going to show you some of the flowers we looked at. Again, there are lots I don’t know the names of, so just enjoy them.
Linda has a ceanothus in her garden that looks fabulous, but I think this one even beats her one!
This hawthorn – or may – is gorgeous!
I have a weigelia in my garden, but it’s not a variegated one like this one on the left. I was tempted, but I don’t think I have room for it. Love the lilac too, but I want a white one!
I like the climbing hydrangea too, and the rhododendrons.
I think I resisted all temptation to buy - that day at least.
Talk again soon.
