First Marina Christopher herself. Who is smiley, approachable and incredibly knowledgeable. And yesterday, in her half an hour talk – which was very low key and down to earth – she changed the way I look at colour in the garden.
Second, Bury Court. It’s got a courtyard garden by Piet Oudolph and a front garden by Christopher Bradley Hole. What more need I say…..
Fourth, the lunch. Which was delicious.
So pastels then….
Yesterday was a grey day (again!) and – as Marina pointed out – pastels on their own can look rather flat.
But add a splash of vibrant colour and it all changes….
So I went home and looked at my photos and picked out the ones that demonstrate this new found fact.
