November 2014

THE SIGHT OF primroses, cowslips and narcissi flowering in November is remarkable, but blooming brightest in my garden this month is the gift of friendship.

A variety of plants and shrubs have recently come my way, donated from the lovely garden of one kind friend. Clumps of choice iris’s and favoured perennials have been split and saved for me by another and spent tulip bulbs from a public park have been rescued with me specifically in mind.

Thanks to this generosity, gaps are filling and lollipop sticks mark the spots where spring bulbs will emerge. They join plants brought from our London garden, some grown from cuttings taken many years ago and others given to mark significant dates.

Now, as I make room for them, memories, friends and occasions fill my thoughts. Little wonder that gardening is so pleasurable – even if it means saying bye bye Macleaya!
