Summer in the garden


There’s the picture of the summer in the garden – lovely Becs pulling up the weeds and generally making everything shipshape in one of the flowerbeds with Bev Pace from charity ‘Back on Track’ providing moral and practical support in the background.¬†gracegarden-009

Our sign got a facelift too. We’ve come a long way in three seasons. The garden is fuler, with a greater variety of flowers and is abuzz with bees and people. The team has increased in size; Young Blooms has a new shopfront, closer to the garden and we’re featuring regularly in the press,¬†spreading the word about the benefits of growing British flowers.

And late summer is dahlia and zinnia time. Even the wind and rain of the last few days can’t dampen our spirits. Gardens have a habit of lifting the spirits, don’t they?
