Prized Orchids to Grow and Treasure - Pumpkin Beth

Endangered orchids If we hear that an item is rare – be it a jewel, or an item of clothing, or a plant – the very idea that there is limited stock of whatever it is available can send our minds into overdrive, just knowing that there is a restricted quantity of the product in question in existence, can fervently increase our desire to own the item – we don’t want to miss out after all! Sadly our desire to keep ahead of the pack and our wish to surround ourselves with beauty, to grow exotic…

Super Surrey Spring Gardens - Pumpkin Beth

April is such a magical time of year! It’s quite simply awe inspiring to see the landscape being painted by mother nature in every beautiful shade of green, as more leaves unfurl and the view becomes ever greener each day. I love to be outside, surrounded by the birds singing and bees buzzing. On warm days you may see butterflies flying: look out for the green toned Brimstone butterfly this month.

I just love growing sweet peas! I love to be enveloped by the sweet pea flower’s powerful and sensuous scent, while I’m encompassed by the flower’s beauty and charm. Eternal bliss! Everyone should have at least a few moments of pause and reflection, to recharge with their favourite sweet pea blooms each and every summer.
