What strange times! My photo exhibition happened in the nick of time and now that we are asked to avoid social contact there will be plenty of time for gardening, and other projects. So this is a quick update on The City Garden in mid-March with my Six on Saturday.
It has been a wet day, too wet to ‘garden’ in the Fortnight Garden but not too wet to participate in Six on Saturday and seek advice from The Propagator and fellow gardeners!
