    Oh goodness, how I enjoyed watching this! I’ve missed you here!
    First of all, despite knowing you through blogging for many years, I have not heard your voice! You have such a beautiful voice! Also, I love your garden, (even laid siege to by chickens!) and all the beautiful flowers you grow. I’m not proficient enough a gardener and mostly fall back on wildflower types I can easily grow from seed. But I’m branching out and trying to be braver.

    What a lovely video! It was such a pleasure to hear your voice. I hope everything is fine (or better than last year).

    How lovely to hear you! And it was really nice to be introduced to your garden. Your son has made a great job of the fence and once the gates are done your lovely plants can breathe a sigh of relief! Naughty chickens!
    Your violets are incredible! The ones that are in my garden are only a couple of inches high and have tiny dark purple flowers. They are more for ground cover. Yours look like proper plants!
    My garden is full of pansies at the moment. The spring bulbs are all over, here in the south of England. The roses are just coming into bloom and will be perfect in another couple of weeks. I have one by the front door called Harlequin. It starts off as a yellow bud but as it forms into a flower it turns pink before fading to dark red as it dies off. It’s quite striking. I also have one called Peace, a lovely yellow. It has interesting story behind its name which the younger children might like to look up.
    I do hope your health improves soon and you are able to enjoy your garden and your knitting. I’m more of a crochet person but I love the colourwork you do.
    Thanks again for the video. I really enjoyed it. Caz

    Thank you! I’m smiling broadly as I reply to this. I feel just the same whenever you post a little video where you are talking to Wren. I think there is something really lovely about actually hearing a person’s voice. I also think that I may do some more little videos.

    Oh, and do be brave! Most perennials are so easy to grow! If we lived closer, I would divide up a whole bunch of stuff and get you started. If we ever do actually get together, like we’re always talking about, I may just have to bring a carload of plants!

    Thank you so much! Honestly, it’s almost exactly the same as last year. It was kind of intense to come back to my blog after a year and find that my last post was about everything that’s going on again now. Crazy. Oh well. It’s so nice to be hearing from some old friends again.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment! I’m jealous of your roses coming in. All in due time, I guess. In my experience the tiny dark purple violets have the strongest scent, so you are very lucky there. I’ve been trying to spread that sort more about my garden.

    So wonderful to see you back on – love your garden video with chicken song in the background!
