SPRING is on the way and it all gets a little bit exciting. There are new signs of life in the garden. The honeysuckle has new shoots, and the aquilegia are popping up all over the place. I have heard that The Chelsea Flower Show may take place in September this year so there could be a whole different selection of plants to see. Our village is having an Open Garden day in July so plenty to look forward to. The gardens two years ago were so diverse it gave me lots of ideas. Oh no! that does not bode well! I will be digging up and replanting, AGAIN!!
INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY This is celebrated every year on March 8th, it is a day for honouring the achievements of women throughout history. I had no idea of the impact that it would have on flower sales. In Russia the day is a celebrated by the giving of flowers to all women, mums, grandmothers, wives, girlfriends, it is also an official public holiday.
MOTHER’S DAY is fast approaching. We celebrate this year on March 14th. Last year was a very sad occasion, not only were flowers almost impossible to source, I expect I, amongst hundreds of other Mums did not see their children. Doesn’t matter how old they are its still nice to get together. This year will once again be a little quiet but there is light at the end of a very long tunnel. Flowers this year will be available so a sense of normality for me, and hopefully in a few months time we will get to see our families once again.
