Hooray for Friday.  We have lots of potential plans for this weekend. Maybe a ramble in Henley tomorrow and maybe the Great Dixter Dachshund Day on Sunday.  The garden could also do with some attention!  Here are my favourite finds this week:

From the Galloping Gardener: Head for Britain’s Greatest Glasshouses

Check out the first edition of digital magazine Voyage

An interesting DIY for moss covered table numbers for those organising a wedding or event

Leaf Peeping: beautiful autumn colours on verhext

SouleMama’s October Garden (we have squash envy)

New York’s High Line: Is London ready for the gritty side of green?

The Chelsea Fringe is calling for volunteers and projects

Calling all veg growers: The Garlic Farm are looking for the best amateur garlic grower for The Great British Garlic Challenge!  A fantastic prize is on offer.

Walcot Hall – amazing holiday accommodation

What a lovely winter getaway this beautiful old chapel would make.  It can be found at Walcot Hall in Shropshire, where it was lovingly restored and is now rented as accommodation.

Walcot Hall looks to be an amazing place, offering a huge variety of holiday accommodation, from lovely apartments, to camping and gipsy caravans in their arboretum.
