last year was without doubt my best one yet in the ten years that I’ve been plotting.
All the flowers did well, and I was particularly pleased with the cornflowers Polka Dot and all the cosmos, including these yellow Xanthos.
Of note among the vegetables were the sweet corn, which I picked almost daily throughout August, and the excellent climbing French beans Sultana which in early September were among my prize winners at the Horticultural Society Annual Show.
Seeing Foxy as I did, having the robin as an almost constant plot companion and seeing gold finches on the teasels for the first time were the wildlife highlights.
It was lovely to meet Liz, and her daughter Mary, over from Lexington, Kentucky at the end of May and show them round.
I hope that this year will prove to be as good, or even better.
Have a good week!
