Totally thrilled to be in the Guardian this weekend. Yes that’s right THE Guardian newspaper! A big Thank You to Jane Perrone for the opportunity.

Rosewarne Gardens, Guardian Weekend MAgazine, White Garden

Putting together a planting plan from the Van Meuwen/Thompson & Morgan plant catalogue (and begging list), which had a number of iterations and the final plan is very pleasing. Most definitely do-able in lots of gardens, with gloriously lush green texture and flounces of periodic whiteness …oh and then there was the pale pink thyme – that several people have mentioned as their first comment! – I know it’s a White garden but honestly 95% or the year it will be pale green and cream, for a fleeting week or so it might flower palest pink but if you’re hedging it, which after all is it’s purpose, well no flowers, Zero, Zilch, NADA…. There are limitation to what one can ‘demand’ T&M stock, white Thymus was not on the list!

I’m sure VSW would have understood after all her Leucanthemums have yellow middles!

Social Networking – I’m sure I said…but then maybe I haven’t?

I have convinced myself that I blogged about setting up a Facebook page. But on searching find I have done nothing of the sort. This year one firm resolution is to return to the wonderful if sometimes tedious habit of todos. Yes the list that drives many people nuts but in the end, in my life at least, it means I don’t forget as many things as I do without it. The task may linger for weeks on end but you can be assured I feel guilty about not having completed it at least!
So social networking,well there is a page on FACEBOOK
