A large part of our holiday was spent with me drooling over flowers - not flowers in gardens, for to be honest we didn't really come across much gardening going on - but those in fields and on verges.
Our soil is too heavy fertile and damp to create proper meadows easily, but one thing that I have brought back is the urge to plant rosa rugosa hedges along our long boundary.
Oh - and plant a birch wood - but that is for another day . . .
