Plant ya now, dig ya later...

Ok, so here we are on the Bubble Brothers website and relishing the challenges of Wordpress. Why do something the easy way when you can make it much harder for yourself? I hope the technically adept among you are appreciative, or a little sympathetic, or something. I'm sure it'll be good for us in the long run. While we're settling in to the new space, you'll excuse my seeking a bit of comfort from the past with a couple of snaps of my old office at Annes Grove, a garden you should go to.

Walled Garden, Annes Grove

Of course gardening isn't all laughs. The Rare and Special Plant Fair was held at Fota last Sunday, and was wettish and coldish to say the least. Some of the prices seemed pretty rare and special too, but I suppose that's what people might say about our wines - and we don't even make those.

Though if I'd had the time to linger at the stand you see pictured here, who knows...

    I was at Annesgrove at the weekend and I can certainly endorse your recommendation. There's so much there to explore - we managed to walk the legs off ourselves! I really enjoyed browsing in the walled garden and a man we met there gave us some very good tips for growing sweetcorn. The only thing missing was a café with some coffee and cake at the end of our walk - the next time I'll pack a picnic!

    Dear Caroline,

    (Sorry not to reply sooner - I'd forgotten that Wordpress has a very predatory spam trap that needs supervision.)

    I'm really pleased you liked the garden. The picnic is an excellent - and bloggable? - idea. I think the café, unfortunately, belongs in the same hazy parallel future as my becoming head gardener/estate manager...
