Stellar Pelargonium "Pat Hannam" and a visit to The Savill Gardens

"Pat Hannam" - Basic Stellar Pelargonium
This basic stellar pelargonium was hybridised by Brian West and introduced through Fibrex Nurseries.  Pat Hannam has single flowers which are a delightful pale pink colour with darker veining to each petal.

 Last week I went on a coach trip organised by a group from the village to The Savill Gardens.     The  Savill Gardens has been on my ‘wish list’ of places to visit for some years now, so I was delighted when the opportunity arose to visit.   I was not disappointed.

The Savill Gardens is situated within the south-east corner of Windsor Great Park and was created in the 1930’s by Sir Eric Savill.    The gardens continue to be developed under the patronage of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.   The magnificent Rose Garden was opened by Her Majesty in 2010.
