Not So Shrinking Violets

Posted on

With Chelsea Flower Show less than a month away, mornings such as this (down to zero) are doing nothing to help the progress of viable English roses which are meant to be flowering soon ready to take centre stage on The Real Flower Company’s stand (EA539). Even the tulips in my garden have collapsed under the frost, heads hanging in a listless fashion and fresh rose leaves, so full of promise are flopping helplessly.

However the violets I saw on my run this morning were ignoring the vagaries of the weather and the ducks too, like every other year, are ahead of the game and already on patrol at the Rose paddock with 12 ducklings in a regimented line.
