Yesterday we bought a beautiful little tree and today the lovely Mr S has planted it. A very dear friend of ours will be 100 years old in May and she has asked that we don’t buy her ‘things’ but instead plant a tree in her name in our own garden or in the family Forest Garden. We have chosen a dramatic red leaved Corkscrew Hazel, Corylus Red Majestic. It has the prettiest red catkins.
Another friend was in touch today as she was wanting to buy one of my glass pieces to send away for a birthday present. This is the piece she chose and it all wrapped up ready to post in its special box.
The Forget-Me-Nots that I brought from my Mum’s garden after she died in 1993 have just begun flowering for this summer.
