Taking a firm hand with my garden was one of the motivating factors when I signed up for a day at Green and Gorgeous learning about growing your own cut flowers yesterday.
Well, that, and the fact that I am utterly seduced by their farm. It's a magical place - Johnny captured a little corner of it earlier this summer - health warning - the camera is extremely unsteady as he trots about - beware of motion sickness!
Yesterday, was less wandering and more focussed on the nitty gritty of planning and growing. And I got to spend the day with Tracy (though we were too busy scribbling notes to chat for much of it). Apart from during a very yummy lunch, (vegetable lasagna, home grown tomatoes with basil and salad and almond meringue with garden raspberry coulis and cream) which I was too busy snarfing to photograph.
And when I got home, I could look at my beautiful flowers and begin to plan all that I want to achieve outdoors next season. Starting off with making up a bulb shopping list. Mine includes Muscari, Triteleia, Scented Narcissus and of course Tulips.
