Every year the Times newspaper used to encourage its English readers to list the plants flowering in their gardens on Christmas Day. Some famous gardeners and garden writers have shared this fascinating glimpse into their private gardens and now it’s your turn!
Between the Kir Royal and the foie gras, why not slip out into the fresh air for a bit and make a note of the flowers you find in your own or in neighbour’s gardens?
France occupies a huge geographical range so some may be swimming while others are skiing: this variety of climates should show up in the flowers and in a year like this, when Nature herself seems confused by the weather, anything might be in bloom.
My list will as usual be on the Gardener in France blog but I shall certainly be posting a copy here. I hope you’ll drop in and play!
