Ten feet up in the air, in the fork of two moss covered branches, I noticed Violets growing. Aren’t they lovely?
This afternoon we walked around the gardens of a local nursery, Burncoose, where the Magnolias are magnificent and the Rhododendrons truly spectacular. Join us on our walk in their extensive grounds.
My choice of poem for you today is the lyrics from a song we heard on BBC Radio 2, Pink Shoelaces, by Dodie Stevens, as we were driving home from the gardens. Do have a listen and the lyrics are embedded in the video. It is from 1959, neither of us had heard it before but it was so catchy we ended up singing at the tops of our voices in the car. Try joining in – it is very therapeutic!
