Flowerona reflects: flowerbeds & ferries
What an action-packed week it’s been! It started off quietly and then, well, read further and you’ll see what I’ve been up to…
Out & about
Last Friday, hubbie and I travelled down to South Devon to stay with friends and help them with a charity day they were holding on the Saturday.
On the Sunday, we had amazing weather, so after brunch outside in a seaside cafe, we went on a little trip up the estuary and here a few photos.
Simply travelled back from Devon…
Caught up on emails and wrote blog posts, plus went to a Zumba class in the morning.
What an amazing day Wednesday was! If you read my blog posts yesterday you’ll know all about it.
So, I won’t go into detail now…but I just wanted to show you this photo that I took of the fabulous Alan Titchmarsh with gardener Damian Jenkinson.
Damian was one of the speakers at the conference and he was inspired by Alan to embark on a career in horticulture, after having watched the TV programme Ground Force.
At the end of the event, Damian asked if I’d mind taking a photo of him and Alan…it was a pleasure.
Dealt with emails and wrote blog posts.
