That's what I'm going to have as I'm going on a holiday to Scotland tomorrow. And it's not just any old holiday, oh no, I'm going on a garden tour with a dear friend to see lots and lots of Scottish gardens. Isn't that great? I'll have a lot to blog about when I return. What's that? You are curious to know what gardens I'm going to visit ? Well, for those of you who can't wait until my return and for my garden friend Shirl who asked me about it, here are some spoilers:
Royal Botanical Garden Edinburgh
An Cala Garden Bide-A-Wee Cottage Garden
Drummond Castle Garden
Mount Stuart Garden
Mount Stuart Kitchen Garden
I'll be gone for a week and the under-gardener will look after the Bliss team and the Bliss garden while I'm away. Please keep your fingers and toesies crossed for me that it won't rain the whole time. My teacher English went on a holiday to Scotland once and it rained for weeks. After 2 weeks of rain my teacher asked the hotel owner if it always rained in Scotland. Oh no, the owner said, sometimes it snows.

It's the month of June,
The month of leaves and roses,
When pleasant sights salute the eyes,
And pleasant scents the noses.
