More photos from Mottisfont Conference

Hi - I took about 3000 photos during my month in England and am wading through them now. Many of you remember joninwessex from years ago on GW, and you may know Dr. Malcolm Manners, Cydney Wade (Rose Acres nursery), or Mike Shoup (Antique Rose Emporium). Here are some shots from Jon's garden. There will be more - not 3000, I promise you!

The greatest disappointment of the trip was not meeting Suzy. I hope that things are sorted out with her and that she's able to replace the important things that she lost. I wasn't able to get onto GW while I was on the trip so wasn't able to express my shock and concern when she shared what had happened.

I did get to meet Maurizio from Sardinia, Pat Toolan and Billy West from Australia, and many other garden friends. A lovely time.

Lori, you're another person I've known for years via GW and have never met - would have been great if you could have come!

Wonderful photos, Anita, but not enough! I could easily look at 3000 pictures of Jon's garden. His garden is one of my all-time favorites.

I wish Maurizio posted here; his garden is another treasure and he's such a nice person. It's been a long time since he appeared here more or less regularly. It would be so interesting to see what his garden looks like now.
