A Few Glimpses of Paradise

Today and tomorrow is open day at Bob Cherry's home garden 'Paradise'. I mentioned this garden in my posting about Derelie Cherry's beautiful new book 'Two Dogs and a Garden' but today I can provide a few pictures.

Bob Cherry showed us some of the gems in the collection, particularly Camellias from China and thereabouts. As always he would gather enthuisiasts as we swept (or more accurately, meandered) through the garden.

Here are a few more pictures from today, the first two Camellia amplexicaulis, a species we had in (single) flower a few weeks ago in the Royal Botanic Gardens.
And Bob in action...
