Barbara Hepworth Garden talk...

This morning I enjoyed a talk at the Barbara Hepworth Museum by the head gardener organised by The Tate Gallery.  The weather was fabulous; creating dappled shade & interesting highlights on the foliage.  Rather than focusing on the sculptures (like on my last visit earlier this summer) I really switched to the plants this time....I'd missed the agapanthus blooms but the Japanese anemones were stunning in the sunshine.  A few of the leaves were starting to turn a shade of yellow (very fitting for my project!) but a lot of the shrubs are evergreen.

It was great to learn some top tips about gardening near the sea & to view the garden on such a lovely morning.
