Avid garden blog readers will have seen the way Craig does it at Ellis Hollow. Well, I am a huge admirer. Now that I've done it myself, I see that it's both easier and harder than it looks. I can't wait to try this again, later in the year when I have more material to work with.
Some music to set the mood while you scroll down? Don't you always think of the Cocteau Twins when you visit Ellis Hollow for Bloom Day? I know I do.
It took me a little while to get the hang of it. At first, I felt frustrated by my inability to execute the visions that formed unbidden in my mind while I collected in the garden.
So I had to let go of visions.
Happy Bloom Day. And Happy Valentine's Day.
