There's something to be said for gardening in the CIs. This photo was
taken on Monday and from the size of that Brugmansia insignis, it's
been growing there for some time!!

May I remind you that this is a family newsgroup? There can be no excuse

We did wave at you! Jerssey was as clear as a bell on Monday,
particularly and my mother's house looks directly across to it. It
didn't rain, though. ;-) Sadly we weren't there for long enough to
zoom over in the brother's boat, though we did tootle off to Herm and
Sark for brief visits and passed the "semi-detached" castle on
Brecqhou. The gardens in our hotel and in Mother's place were looking
terrific. There was a lot still flowering and on Herm we saw agaves in
flower, down near the shoreline. It certainly reminded us of how much
'easier' gardening can be over there. For years, I had the bedding
plant Ballota growing in a little paving pocket on a terrace and it
grew up and through a very mature Camellia. Pelargoniums were never
brought in but were just cut back to flower again next year and a
friend has Bougainvillea happily growing round her front door. Sighs
of envy...!

Ah, good old Randalls! I think I should have got Ray to try the
Liberation Ale!


Sorry to say this, but that Liberation Ale tastes like winkle dew.
Le Mesurier houses were taken over by Liberation?
I remember La Motte pub on the corner of La Motte street and St.Saviours
road. The Devonshire on first tower. The Bond on Bond street, Wolf's caves
in St.John. All gone now. I think Devils Hole too.

All memories now.

Ah, that's Jersey. I've also lived there as an adult and was born
there. But this time we were visiting Guernsey for a few days, where
my mother and stepfather bought a house in 1956. I grew up mainly in
that island. Devil's Hole itself is still there but I have no idea if
there's a pub near it. I've never tasted the Liberation Ale, so I can't
comment. ;-) It was moving back to Jersey in my early 30s that
really got me interested in gardening. My former in-laws had an
enormous garden which they'd made from fields surrounding their
property and they were extremely knowledgeable hands-on gardeners, too.
Pa in law was a member of the International Camellia Society and he
made a wonderful Camellia Walk in his garden and planted many more all
over the place. It gave me a lifelong love of Camellias and recently,
when I was asking Jennifer Trehane about one we have here, she said
that she remembered very well a trip she made to China with my in-laws
and other Camellia enthusiasts. He also got quite heavily involved with
the original planting at Jersey Zoo when Gerald Durrell started that up
and he was one of the first Trustees. Gardening in the CIs can induce
serious envy in others because the climate is (mostly) so benign and
things can be grown outside which are hovered and fussed over even in a
conservatory in UK! I remember that one wall was absolutely smothered
in Mandevilla suaveolens for years, until a rare bad winter carried it
off.

My parents very nearly bought an hotel in Guernsey but bought one in the
Isle of Wight instead.
