I love growing from seeds. I just love seeing how a plant develops from a tiny seed, almost effortless, just like that, from one day to another. Well, it’s not always that easy so I was very excited when Rachel, at Green and Gorgeous, offered a new class in her training calendar, the Propagation Masterclass. I can’t wait to learn from her and know more about this beautiful art of growing your flowers from seeds. And I can’t wait to see what grows in her garden this year. I’ll definitely show you, stay tuned.
Reminded me of our little village in a way. Very quiet with – what it seemed – very friendly people. This is a place where I could move in a second, without hesitation.
There is so much to see, to admire, to contemplate in the pretty village of Blockley, in the Cotswolds. Beautiful location, quiet streets and wonderful gardens. I can’t wait to go back later in May for more greenery.
When my friend’s son saw this image in House & Garden, he told her “but mummy, we don’t pull out flowers from the ground!”. Well, here you’ll see that Rachel – at Green and Gorgeous – does as she grows them as annuals, pulls them out and composts the bulbs. Then in Autumn, she plants new bulbs again. Read about this and more in the magazine (see previous post)
It has always been a big dream of mine, working for a big magazine, being published .. And look what happened, this dream of mine has just come true. The past year I’ve been working on this series that you’ll find now in House & Garden Magazine and for another 5 months. Seeing my photographs in print, right here, I cannot describe the feeling. But it is definitely a very good one.
come and go, these pretty little snowdrops. The ones I have in the garden have started to fade now. This is the only time when I pick them and only just a few. Delicate little things.
Spring is now officially on! Churchyards and gardens and river banks are covered in these delicate little first flowers of the year.
