Audrey II

An interesting morning. I love mornings. I love spring mornings when the plants are all dripping from the overnight rain. There is a low cloud, it is misty and drizzly.

Narcissus just starting to bloom.

We do our best to develop connections with our clients. We have a client that had an out-of-control wisteria in her back yard. She has a wicked sense of humour and when I referred to the wisteria as Audrey II she clicked immediately. Audrey II is the plant in Little Shop of Horrors.

Anyhoo, this wonderful client has been very patient with us during this COVID-19 pause in our business. She sent me some photos from her garden yesterday – I thought I would share them with you too.

This is the time we should be spreading love and kindness. Sending these photos to me is an act of love and kindness. I am sharing them with you.

As usual, if you have anything you want to share with me, please email me at


PS We JUST received our catalogue for next years bulbs. If you like, I can send you information on how to grow an ephemeral spring garden!
