Someone, thinking of visiting, recently asked me what is in flower at Veddw in August.

How do we define ‘gardeners’? by Anne Wareham

January 7, 2015

This piece was originally published in ‘The Garden’ in May 2013. I struggled for a long time to accurately define what I think I am (this is not an invitation to enlighten me, thanks…) and I think this nails it. For me, and presumably for many other people? Send to Kindle

Not all Glooom

November 21, 2014

The group leader now points out to me that I only asked  about the people who didn’t appreciate the garden: the majority did like it. And she asked me to add a new last paragraph, which I now have done.  This was feedback which I requested from the leader of a recent coach party. I […]

A praise poem to the place by Elizabeth Musgrave

July 24, 2014

This is a personal email to me from a friend, so perhaps doesn’t belong as a review. But Elizabeth discusses and responds to that which is so important to me, and which is so much at the heart of the garden that I wanted it here. I think what she has to say is important […]
