Hot, turbulent weather yesterday didn't augur well for the first day of garden visiting. But people defied the wind and heat and our gardens were inundated with visitors.
Today the weather was milder, but the numbers didn't decrease.
Our gardeners reported back the wonderful responses from the visitors - how they enjoyed the gardens, their diversity, the generosity of the gardeners in opening up their gardens. Thank you visitors for your respect and the pleasure you took in our gardens.
And the hugest thank you to our gardeners and their willing slaves - without you this weekend would not have happened.
More tales hopefully will be posted over the next few days. Keep an eye on our blog.
