Snapshots from a long weekend of gardens

Part of the Perennial Legacy Garden, designed by Paul Harvey-Brookes, at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show (Thursday) - deservedly 'Best in Show'.
 My friend Gary Keim  from Philadelphia has been visiting, and by taking a day off, and fitting garden visits between meetings we were able to get to see a number of good gardens and the Tatton Park Flower Show. Each could have its own blog post, but I've chosen one shot from each as a representative of things to see in each garden at present. Not an easy choice!

Amazing mulleins in the tropical border at Harewood House, at peak flowering (Friday), presumably mostly derived from Verbascum olympicum.

A shimmering mass of perennials in Piet Oudolf's central section of Scampston Walled Garden (Saturday).

Sunglasses needed: Corn Marigold (Glebionis segetum) at Breezy Knees garden (Saturday).

Mist in my garden on Sunday morning (Agastache 'Serpentine' is conspicuous).

Clematis 'Mme Julia Correvon' at the Garden House, Condicote, Gloucestershire (Sunday)

Helianthus 'Little Becka' in the sunflower trial at RHS Garden Wisley, a superb multi-branching short cultivar, with very attractive flowers.
