John, as there is nothing else going on,  thought I might start this off with 6 weeks to go.

First off we leave home(Mudgee)

The why is easy, Holidays, to leave our Winter behind for six weeks.

Then catch a plane to Changi Airport. then Heathrow, then Aylesbury.
Then the Eurostar to Paris France.
And other places, maybe Spain.

Ooh how exciting David!! I could definitely use some warm weather about now Smile Very jealous!

Gary, my little sister and I, along with my mum and her husband, are going to Europe in April-May 2017 too, to celebrate my mum's 60th birthday. We are planning on doing a tour of Cornwall's gardens. As I've never been to Europe, I might stay on a bit with my sister and visit France too. I am dying to visit the gardens of Notre Dame d'Orsan priory! It's more an edible garden than a rose garden, but it looks so so amazing.

Perhaps if the dates line up we could meet up in France for a baguette? Heh.

Zoe, Cornwall/ Southampton is on the itinerary as well, my mother came from there so I reckon I should go and have a look. 
I do hope both yourself and Gary are going more towards May rather than April, can be a bit chilly still then from one of our trips to England for a family wedding.

Thanks David. We really have no idea so if anyone can tell us the best time. I guess Lee went to England in July-August so maybe that is a better time.

Yes Gary, July - August is the best time to go. That is why we are going at that time.
I doubt you will see many or any roses in April - May they tend to start in June.
I hope this helps.

Urgh. What was that Shakespeare guy going on about "the darling buds of May" for then? I assumed he spoke the truth, but I see now he was just using poetic license!

Right! Go in June! The roses have just started to bloom and everything is fresh - including the weather!! LOLOL No, seriously, June is a good month, you don't get too many tourists and the children haven't broken up for the Summer holidays yet! Weather isn't bad either - for the Northern Hemisphere.

Oh David, if you and Carole see any Aylesbury ducks during your stay, please please please take some pics for me!

(They're the huge white ducks with light pink/skin tone bill.)
