Some of the plants in the Spanish gardens I have photographed can be found in English gardens for example roses, fuchsias and carnations. Others are too tender to be grown this far north.
However, there is plenty of choice for colour in most parts of Britain. These are a few of the plants I found in the garden of our very good friends, Hugh and Angela on the Wirral.
We went over to see them yesterday and enjoyed a fabulous BBQ. I have to tell you, when it comes to cooking on a charcoal Weber, Hugh is the master.
