On the day of the Royal Wedding, I turned up too early at Nyman Gardens - one of group meeting Ed Ikin, Head Gardener for a seminar on recycling and composting.
As I waited, my attention went to an unusual tree near the public entrance to the gardens. I'm sure it was a handkerchief tree as I had read about the remarkable success Nyman Gardens has had in growing these. There were several more inside in a group.

Of the other 15 people making up the recycling party, a breathless latecomer said in tones of complete disbelief, "Couldn't you have given the talk after the wedding ceremony?" An amused chuckle rippled down the disparate ranks.

But right now, I recommend the bluebell walks at Nyman Gardeners. Look right to see them as they were on Royal Wedding Friday.
Incidentally, it seems that Will's Etonian friends call his new wife and her sister The Wisteria Sisters. That can only bode well when you look at how beautiful and how strong wisteria is.
