  • JOY TO THE WORLD .
.
Having come through a very shocking accident ( no fatalities no injuries ) yesterday that closed the motorway all day and last night we were beyond grateful to arrive safely at our destination ! .
.
@bourton_house_garden NEVER DISAPPOINTS !! We have visited many times throughout the seasons but yesterday’s sensational weather showed the garden in all its Autumn glory !!!! .
.
Adam Frost on BBC Gardeners World ( the Garden was recently show cased on the programme ) said in his opinion September / October were possibly the best time to visit ! .
.
The most glorious setting - stunning deep borders and the most fabulous plants - trees - topiaries and stunning landscapes all around - An OASIS !!! .
.
If you don’t know it and haven’t been you’re missing a treat !! .
Just a handful of shots to inspire - more to follow !!! .
.Pic 1 
The climbing vine Ipomea Labata - the fire vine - the firecracker vine - the spanish flag vine summed up the mood yesterday .
JOY TO THE WORLD ( and my thoughts with all those whose plans yesterday simply couldn’t go ahead ) .

  • A LATE BLOOMER ! .
.
Continuity in the garden is always a challenge - how do we link the seasons and keep fresh interest especially as summer fades and we have the onset of Autumn ? .
.
Cobae Scandens - The Cup and Saucer vine doesn’t flower until the end of summer / early autumn and this from an early spring sewing ! .
.
@clarenolanuk states in her book ‘IN BLOOM ‘that it has to attain a height of 150-180cm before it starts flowering ! 
Just 1 seedling will cover a huge frame and reward you with these fascinating bell shaped blooms ! .
.
As  the flowers develop they first appear a soft pale green and as they mature start to change and a pale lilac flush appears developing until the flower is this intense purple shade !! Masses of curly tendrils appear in the centre of the flower .
.
A little warning ! It has an unusual smell - you are either going to love it - or not !!! If you bring them inside as I have done there is no way of avoiding it ! .
.
@clarenolanuk and @arthurparkinson_ recommend growing it in between sweet peas because as they fade it can take over the structure !! A great idea for keeping that continuity and also something new that is bound to fascinate all who see it ( Photographed here at home by me for you yesterday )
