I was pleased to be asked to join in this service to talk and to think about plants and the pleasure they give.
My husband was the gardener in our house. I barely pulled a weed. However, under the guidance of my gardener, I have learnt a lot and have been encouraged to try out different plants.
Amazingly, the garden survived under the snow and the Spring was full of early flowering plants. Now we are seeing the geraniums flowering, though not always in the colours expected! There is watering to be done every night, but it’s well worth the time spent. There are still fresh plants, like the sweet peas we planted late, coming through.
My reward comes when I think about my husband and imagine him being delighted that the garden is still a happy and beautiful place.
