Plants of the Month
Lily of the Valley
I was so pleased when I found these growing in my garden just after I moved into this house over forty years ago. They are very special to me as they remind me of my lovely father who had them in his garden too and always picked some for me to take home. It was as though he was here to welcome me. We had a big garden when I was a child and he taught me so much about gardening.
The new double pink hellebore is growing really well. It is daintier than my existing hellebores with smaller flowers and taller. The shade garden has been a delight this year and the new path through it has made it even better.
Artisans Corner News
Sadly Artisans Corner is still closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I am self-isolating but fortunately have a pier commission to work on. I needed more information for this so made a brief trip to the Esplanade armed with my camera to check the details I needed. I went very early as I'm officially supposed to stay home. It was so strange, deserted apart from the odd dog-walker and jogger using their exercise allowance.
It was a beautiful morning and the view across the Channel was so clear, I could see Brent Knoll which is about 12 miles inland from Weston-Super-Mare where I was born. These are sad times, so many lovely people are losing their lives to Covid-19. It is heart-breaking.Take care and Keep safe everyone.
