Kind Hearts and Coronaria

P1000490 (1024x766)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.
