Have you heard the old adage, man makes plans and God laughs? He must have been in stitches last year and looking forward to a chuckle this year too.
Well luckily for me, nature always has her own agenda so it’ll be flowers galore again for Nodding Violets and anything else will just be a bonus!
I’ve started the year on a positive and decided to move all my various growing spaces to one central location, time, I thought, to expand a bit and a chance to get more organised in just one place. I love it up at “the flower field” so really looking forward to spending all my time up there this year, look out for lots of gorgeous flowery pictures, taken there, as the season unfolds.
Collaboration! That’s this years word for me. I shall be spending more time with the zany @pinkgingerflowers, we are thinking of doing a series of videos together. Then perhaps I’ll be giving workshops at Stillingfleet Lodge Gardens and Beardsworths Nursery (if allowed) and as soon as possible, recommencing the pop up shops at the wonderful Gimbals Restaurant. Hand poured botanical soy candles by @olive_and_b will be featuring heavily as we get together and produce enticing gift bundles, flowers and candles? What’s not to like?!!
Valentines and Mother’s Day flowers will come from Cornwall, Isles of Scilly and the bulb fields of Lincolnshire until my own blooms have caught up.
Bye for now!
