In the beginning was the soil and it benefits from a little enriching compost in part created by kitchen waste.Coming soon is this wonderful yellow climber. A rose with heavy bunches of pretty yellow flowers, it doesn’t cut, but looks wonderful on the wall.In full magnificent bloom and with the closest I usually get to a selfie (see bottom right), this rhoddie is a delight.Just going over is this wistaria bought when it looked like a knitting needle and now so vigorous it takes a lot of pruning to keep it under control.
We’ve been very lucky to have the garden to escape to throughout the lockdown and I’m particularly lucky because DH is the gardener. All I have to do is set aside the peelings and wield the secateurs.
What’s been your main escape?
