CHERRY BLOSSOM AND WILD FLOWERS
As I sit down to write this Gardener's World is on in the background.
Adam Frost is talking about a show garden at Malvern. To paraphrase, he said that some people may see this as a bit scruffy but that he thinks this is the way gardens are going - the natural look with wild flowers among the grass.
Co-incidentally I'd chosen this as my first photo this week. It's of an area on the edge of the woodland with bluebells, campion and avens.
Adam then went on to point out plants such as 'garlic mustard' which I have spent three days this week pulling up. It is lovelier than stinging nettles and goose grass (which is why I had let it be) but it's now outcompeting everything else and desperate measures were needed.
I can now see the Hostas which were completely hidden before I started.
