Oh thank you, Lovegardens. Yes i am very fortunate to have such a wonderful garden. Before we bought it the former owner was an army major who had a full-time gardener who did the housekeeper's who lived in in those days bidding, so I inherited miles of very straight concrete paths, huge beds of strawberries and herbs and beds full of roses with very old fruit trees and a few conifers. I have spent many a happy hour in the last 52 years disguising the edges of the paths, getting rid of lawns and long grass and growing veg and fruit and hundreds of beautiful flowers. I often wonder what they would have thought of my potager and slate scree, my marvellous trees, my bulbs, perennials, and the Butterfly Garden full of thousands of snowdrops in the winter and bees and butterflies in the summer.
