  2. Thanks Phillip for a wonderful tour of your garden today. Although it was a wet and soggy day, everything looked wonderful and made the day one to remember for a long time. Would love to come back when hydrangeas are in bloom.

  13. So you have a fondness for pink roses? They are all gorgeous, particularly the David Austins. I'm so sad, my David Austin didn't survive the winter. Boohoo!
