Holehird Gardens, Lakeland Horticultural Society, 24th January 2015

On a dull day we arrived at one of the jewels in Britain's gardens, Holehird, the home of the Lakeland Horticultural Society and a marvelous place. The faintest scintilla of light promised much but only for the duration of the photograph. Still, we take what we can on a dark day.


Two remarkable plants greeted us. First, Ilex Aquifolium 'Bacciflava' with its fabulous yellow berries.



And then, glory of fragrant glories, "Daphne Bholua Jacqueline Postill", a plant of which I have written previously.




Rain. So we retired to the alpine house and I wished for the umpteenth time that I should chat to the bank manager about one in our garden.  She promptly told me it was impossible!!






Little actual colour but saxifraga and such that hugged the rocks.
