Another away day today, visiting some wonderful women (always a good start) who are growing cut flowers organically not too far from the centre of Exeter, this Anemone coronaria is one of their blooms. To reach their plot I had to tackle a very scary roundabout (there may have been dragons). In this battle, involving lane changing, lorries and beeping (I am but a poor innocent country gal) I unfortunately came off second best. Luckily I met a handsome knight in the service station (an AA man called Alan) who boldly guided me through the dark zone and into the light. It was certainly worth the adventure, a beautiful spot, enthusiasm and enterprise, I came away inspired. We must spread the word – Buy Locally Produced Cut Flowers! Don’t make me tell you twice.
I didn’t push my luck, I can’t cope with too much excitement in one day and Alan had gone to get his lorry serviced, I went home the easy way.
