BHHS Summer Weekend & Other Gardens

Just got back from England. I was fortunate to have a great friend, Glen 
Pether, with whom I drove up from London to Houghton(Lake District) to the 
gardens of Gwen Black. This is a must! We spent the day and night in their 
Edwardian manor house and viewed their sensational garden. Then to Yorkshire 
for the Summer Weekend .Fab gardens, culminating with that of George Smith in 
Heslington, near York. Saw great specimens of Hosta 'George Smith' grown in 
huge urns and in other places in his garden.
The BHHS put on a grand show and the hospitality and company was superb.
Glen is a great host and hostaphile---he has the best collection of 
hostas---be sure to contact him when you are in the London area.

(My name tag read "Clive" Crockett---they thought I was British. I rather 
liked that, what.)
