What glorious spring weather we are having and I am so lucky to have fabulous countryside walks right on our doorstep to enjoy as part of our daily exercise. Whilst walking I remembered a lovely holiday we had in North Devon a few years ago. The verges and hedgerows were jam packed with wildflowers attracting all sorts of wildlife, there is something quite magical about seeing a field of poppies gently swaying in the breeze.
January proved to be a busy month to kick start the New Year. We attended the Marshalls Regional Road Show in Exeter with Sherborne Garden Angels and had a chance to preview their new and exciting range of garden and driveway paving materials. Despite the very wet and windy drive to Exeter, we had a really nice evening and got the chance to ask the Marshalls experts questions about their new products.
What a great time we had at this year’s Taunton Flower Show. In January I started to think about the design for my show garden. I did some research and discovered that in July it would be the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing – such an incredible achievement for mankind, and I thought this would make a perfect theme for my garden.
As I am writing this month’s column the weather is glorious – at last summer appears to be here!
I thought this month I would tell you about the projects I have been busy designing and, suffice to say it has been a full-on year and we are only just over half way through!
