Last post from Colesbourne

Lilium pardalinum

First and last view of the cottage.
After seven years of living and making a garden here I move to Yorkshire today. It is of course painful to leave so much behind, but new opportunities and possibilities await, and the creation of a new garden is always fun. PIctures from yesterday afternoon.

Helenium 'Sahin's Early Flowerer'

View across the garden.

Clematis 'Paul Farges'

'Waiting for the bus'

Now I must finish the packing!


  1. one journey ends another begins.

  2. John, you are going to God's country and my favourite county of all.
    I hope you enjoy your garden there as much as you've enjoyed your last one.

  3. I hope that you and your plants settle in well and quickly;hope also that you'll continue to post when you are settled.
    Best regards......

  4. Love the photo of the Clematis !!!

  5. Good to see Agave 'Joe Hoak' is coming along and looks like quite a lot of other pots too. Always helps settling in to bring a few friends! Best wishes on the move.

  6. Dear John.
    Like Dustin says, one journey ends, another begins. And we can never know what this new journey will bring, however, we only have one chance, so let´s have a go and make the very best of it. Wish you all the best with your new life, your new job, new garden.
    Best regards, Iris.
    Hope you´ll continue your posts.

  7. John, I hope that by now you have been given a true Yorkshire welcome, all went well with the move and you are beginning to sort things out. I hope the new job is all you imagined and more.


  8. I’m flattened by your contents keep up the excellent work.
