Bob Jones writes: 'In March 2021, I was returning to the car after visiting Inveresk Lodge Garden when I saw Sir Charles Fraser tidying the border outside Shepherd House Garden. He kindly invited me into the garden to photograph whatever was in bloom, and also to come back later when there would be more to see. So, in late May, Vera and I looked at the weather and said - "let's go for it". As with many of us, the tulips in particular had taken a battering from the recent heavy rains, but there were sufficient still standing tall. Further plant names to follow! I spoke with Sir Charles' wife, Ann, who wished members of the Colinton Garden Club to know that they are most welcome to visit the garden. The website address is. www.shepherdhousegarden.co.uk The garden is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2 - 4 pm, until 22nd July - no need to book.' Please click on each image to enlarge photo.
