A big thankyou to Ronnie (RonnieAG), Neil (NeilWigan), Maureen (Paree), and Ken (franken) for their very valued User Awards on my yellow roses, "Symbol of Friendship".
I have been overwhelmed by your response to my flower manipulations, and maybe I'll come back to them some time, but now I am attempting to gently wean myself off uploading any more, and am starting with a wonderful show of purple clematis from the immaculate West Dean Gardens, Chichester, West Sussex, situated in the rolling folds of the South Downs National Park, on the River Lavant, founded by Edward James.
This 300ft-long pergola is the masterwork of the garden designer Harold Peto. It's a massive stone and timber covered walkway, a perfumed promenade, with a pond and little building at the end. V2 gives you a little better insight into its beauty.
