Well we’ve reached the time in winter when I can’t bear the lack of gardening & flowering plants. It happens each year just at different times depending on the severity of the winter and the access (or lack of same) to garden programmes , magazines or any other garden-type substitute. The treatment for this problem is to buy plants, preferably in flower, from where ever you find them . Failing that, armed with computer (& credit card) I start “surfing” the net. Not
necessarily instant gratification but there are photos!!! For anyone similarly afflicted I’ve found Rose Cottage Plants & just ordered several stunning Dahlias following my epiphany in Monet’s garden last August. I also turn to one of my all-time favourite sites Charlotte Chamitoff’s http://www.daylilydiary.com where , amongst other things, she has her GOTW Garden of the Week. This features gardens from the USA, Canada & Europe and next week it features us! We’re really excited to be featuring along with so many lovely gardens & I hope that other people who suffer from the mid-winter blues will find (like I have over all the years I’ve been visiting it) great inspiration from Charlotte’s site. Now I think I’m going to the Strictly Daylilies site to order a couple of beauties that I have NO room for & then will surf some more to try to find that “must have” Hakonechloa I read about somewhere……..
My bank statement says roll on spring & so do I !!
Just some random photos from my garden that remind me that we will see flowers again!
