Rounding the corner onto the South side, that adjacent to the Sheila Chapman Clematis stand.

This not only included lots of rotten logs but also a bracket fungus sent courtesy of Ian Christie, president of our sister society, The Scottish Rock Garden Club. Thanks Ian, they were much admired.

If you look closely at the shot above, you'll see the woodland stream, barely perceptible, but falling into a hole with a splash and essentially feeding the other boggy area.

Also providing another lovely view into the woodland area of the stand.

Leading us to the SE corner, and the woodland bog.

The woodland bog, complete with rotting treestumps included some highly admired Carnivorous plants, supplied by South West Carnivorous Plants.

Bringing us back to the NE corner and the Primula Bog.

Which brings us back to where we came in.

That's all for now, I may post a few plant portraits later.
