The Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh.

These are Autumn Crocus  growing in the RBGE  September 2012

Holehird Gardens.

We visited Holehird Gardens in the lake District close to Ambleside it's run by volunteers and boasts the national collection of Hydrangeas in the UK. A delightful place to visit. We came across the place by accident really.  It doesn't seem to be widely advertised.

English Rose Hips

These Rose hips were in a garden we visited in Yorkshire in August 2012. They were bigger than cherry tomatoes.

Vireya Rhododendron "Kisses"

This is a lovely Vireya that is flowering at present, Avery compact plant with lots of flowers.

Camellia Reticulata "Bright Beauty"

  This is a favourite time of the year in the garden. The Camellias are coming into bloom and the reticulatas are stunning with their large beautiful flowers
