We are leaving Thursday after two months in the UK, and I am feeling nostalgic.

Never have I seen so many beautiful flowers in such a short period of time.  Never have I “met” a nation so enamored of flowers.  Even the smallest front garden has a proud patch of posies, and the frequent rain and temperate climate keeps them all very happy.

Here is a tiny sampling of the special flowers I saw–with thanks to all the plant-hunters who introduced them to Britain from far-away places centuries ago, and with appreciation for all of the gardeners who look after them.

The bees thank them too…


  1. Thanks for taking us along with you on your journeys. What a lovely summer.

    • It was sweet to have you with me. For our last day, we’re off to the Garden Museum (would you believe?) in London along the Thames.
