This was our second visit to Biddulph Grange, our first was back in 2001 on our first trip to Derbyshire. Back then we hadn't moved into our current house so a trip to a garden was just a trip to a garden.
These days we spot the plants we have in our garden and compare how they're doing and what they're planted with; we spot plants we'd like to have in our garden and compile a mental shopping list; I test MOH on plant names (this time we concentrated on peonies) and we get ideas on how we can change our garden at home, clearly on a much smaller scale.
And I take pictures, lots of them.
But Biddulph really is an amazing garden.
