Spent a lovely day at Quenington and Bibury today.
For long-term readers, you may remember my visit to Quenington last year, and the incredible sculpture trail.
Sadly, no sculpture trail this year, but still lots of nice things. All my favourite flowers: foxgloves, honeysuckle, lupins, snap dragons and corn flower. Here's a few pics.

Above is Jenny Greenteeth.
Jenny Greenteeth is a figure in English folklore. A river hag, similar to Peg Powler, she would pull children or the elderly into the water and drown them. She was often described as green-skinned, with long hair, and sharp teeth. She is called Jinny Greenteeth in Lancashire, but in Cheshire and Shropshire she is called Ginny Greenteeth, Jeannie Greenteeth, Wicked Jenny, or Peg o' Nell...
The name is also used to describe pondweed or duckweed, which can form a continuous mat over the surface of a small body of water, making it misleading and potentially treacherous, especially to unwary children. - Wiki

Best of the Cotswolds.
Haven't been to many gardens this year due to the weather. On track to be the wettest June in 100 years. So, typical English summer then.
