My Week

Islington Gardeners outing to Painshill Park & then Wisley. We were supposed to be going to two gardens in West Sussex, but at the last minute had to re-arrange as high winds were forecast and the gardens have to close when that happens. So Painshill Park was really good – lots of interesting things to see, newly renovated walled garden,follies & temples galore. The Chrystal Grotto has also been restored and is quite amazing.


Then on to Wisley for lunch and dodging the showers visited the glasshouses with wonderful exotic plants.

Watched VE celebrations and thought about my parents and how they met in the war and what a great story that would make…….. and how we ( David,Max,Henrietta and me ) wouldn’t be here today unless they had.

Anxiously checked Hostas for slug and snail damage – I’ve watered on Nematodes, His Nibs has raised them off the ground and made moats round them etc,etc. So far OK but we’ve a long way to go!

About northoneartist

I live in London, I can see the top of the Shard from my window. I like making things and I mainly produce paintings which I exhibit and sell if the right person comes along!
