IT WAS THE BEST OF TIMES, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES ...
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”
Charles Dickens - A Tale of Two Cities
It's been a strange year, I think we'll all agree, and perhaps you'll find the Dickens quote apposite. For my last post of 2020, I thought I would ignore the grey skies and mud outside and look at what were the best of times in the garden this year.
We begin in late Spring with the Woodland Garden.

And the floral display continued in the Long Border.
