So this week's In a Vase on Monday (thats two weeks now) is foliage from the garden, with the obligatory munched corner courtesy of the slugs. I think it is a good demonstration of how a winter garden doesn't have... Continue Reading →
At this time of year any time snatched in the garden is a welcomed treat. Here in Malvern it has been mild but also very damp with heavy rain on Friday and rain again overnight on Saturday and most of... Continue Reading →
