We had an open evening last night and some chose to do high tea

Others went to local restaurants and pubs. Jean Ann had bread and butter –she ate her meal earlier.

Most of us had an early evening, so were well rested today. I still am not used to the day lenghth. I am used to waking as dawn breaks–here is the sky at 3:30 a.m.

It is another glorious sun-filled day. We did two gardens today. The first was Easter Meikle Fardle-a privately owned and loaded two acre garden. The owners have been dealing with some health issues in recent years, but everything in the garden was originally planted by the owner. Her husband met us at the road and led us in, while she greeted us in her wheelchair to give us a garden overview. She had tons of roses, clematis, primroses, delphiniums and astrantias.

We have seen more varieties of primrose that we didn’t even know existed.

We also saw several amazing specimens of ninebark–Physocarpus.

It was a really well done garden.

Then it was on to our second stop, Branklyn Gardens, another private garden. I will add those pictures in a second post.
