Post Garden open - today - London
Today is my National Garden Scheme open day, from 12.00 to 18.00:

Admission £3.00 toward charitable causes. Children free.

https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/16950/

Two other gardens open at the same time (14.00-18.00), each within 3 minutes' walk.

https://www.ngs.org.uk/find-a-garden/garden/18135/

I open a couple of hours earlier than the others because a lot of the flowering shrubs on the roof are varieties of Cistus and their flowers open every morning and then start to fall off at about 16.00.

Seventy people, which is more than usual.

About 30ºC here according to the thermometer in shade, so probably 32ºC on the roof.

Having been up and down that ladder about 40 times yesterday, I'm having a day of doing as little as possible today, the more so as it's 29ºC in the shade.
