Ness Gardens in the sunshine!

Well, in its capriciousness, the weather decided to be nice to us at Ness last weekend. A beautiful morning, and very quiet there to start off with - it's nice to imagine that you're wandering through your own gardens in the peace of a sunday morning.

SomeBeans tried out his new lens and got some lovely photos...

I've seen Pleione at the Malvern Spring Garden show and assumed that they were difficult and wondrous beasts to grow. This website has information on their cultivation: Heritage Orchids
