Another brief post from me, but I am sure that opening our garden twice in the last few days is a good enough excuse, if an excuse was needed! I will feedback in due course, probably after our big group visit next weekend, but suffice to say at the present time that both days went well and the weather on Wednesday was especially kind, leaving visitors lingering and unwilling to leave. It was cooler and breezier on Sunday, but dry, and that makes such a difference.
The fragrance of sweet peas beguiled all our visitors, and two of Wednesday’s visitors independently suggested to us they would happily have bought some sweet peas if they had been made available. It of course made sense then to provide some little posies on our Sunday opening, which were duly snapped up – if there was truth in the report that a posh flower market was selling similar posies for £12, then it is hardly surprising these proved irresistable! Subject to a good crop, this sideline will now become a regular feature of the openings, and it occurred to me that I could also include posies from the contents of the cutting beds in the future too.
And that’s your lot for my ‘cop out’ Monday vase post – but I deserve a rest… Please join in by leaving links to and from your own post.
