Quel magnifique massif de fleurs.
Brian Walbey: As you've seen this week this is a magnificent place for the displays of flowers.
You were there at the perfect time, Brian. The Dutch also really love their Rhododendrons.

Like the Eden project but without the geospheres.
Perfect timing for the visit
Brian Walbey: Mid-May to late June is when everything is in bloom, the rest of the year there is nothing much tos ee.
What a colourful array of blooms, Brian. A garden is a great use for a disused quarry.
