At last rain so welcome, but after all the sun over the best part of April it feels cold, lit the fire last nigh and have left heating on today.
I always welcome the local paper on a Thursday it keeps me up-todate in a fashion with what’s going on in the town. I also enjoy the gardening section, more so this week as the writer Diarmuid Gavin a well-known garden designer and broadcaster extolled the AEONIUMS, ECHIUM PINNANAAND, we have blue and pink, MELIANTHUS MAJOR. Three plants which of course we grow here at CH. our Aeonium was a gift of one plant from a dear friend in Cornwall from her garden, it rather likes CH as it just multiplies almost on a daily basis and as for the Echium’s well we have pink and blue they are like weeds. Now I know I am boasting, but they really are. So easy to grow but add so much to the garden.
So tomorrow is May Day here in Glastonbury usually a time of wild celebration but not this year, however the garden must go on so plants buy plants to plant and plants to enjoy.
