We started our recent trip to the Hebrides and Northumberland in the port of Oban. We arrived in time to have a lovely lunch and a mooch around the town before boarding the ferry to the Isle of Mull. I was struck by this rather fine traffic island/roundabout with its formal bedding displays.

And there were other delightful floral displays to be seen around the harbour and on a bar front…more on our trip in due course!

Old School Gardener

Blue-flowers-path‘With flowers, as with all other departments of the garden, you first decide what kind you want to grow and then whittle it down to what kind you can grow in the space. When you have further gone through the list and reduced it to what you can afford to grow and then eliminated the ones which you know from bitter experience will refuse to grow you have saved yourself a very great deal of labour indeed.’

Ethelind Fearon 1952
