'Let's just buy it!'
….My husband said as we stood in the gorgeous woodland garden of the house we now live in. We did just buy it! 9 months on and this afternoon I am watching my Gunnera struggle to hold on to its ‘chocolate sauce’ bank as the rain stuffed stream which flows through the garden powers its way down to the river. I haven’t been able to garden for days and it has ‘thrashed down’ with rain constantly, day and night, every minute – ‘the sort of rain that really gets you wet’ as Peter Kay says!
Every now and then I’ve been in and out wearing two raincoats at a time (to reduce the chance of a bone-drenching soaking) just to admire other peoples plants floating by ….. I hope someone down stream says ‘Ooooo … a Gunnera, that’s nice!’
