Sarah Raven; birch twig flower supports
Today I have mostly been making these… Silver birch twigs twisted into rustic (very ‘rustic’ in my case) supports for tall flowers liable to get blown over.. This one is for the delphiniums.
I also hoed some gravel paths and planted some seedlings. I love it; could easily do this every day. Had a Secret Garden moment when a robin came right up close and sat on a post nearby looking at me with a cocked head – the birds really aren’t shy (or maybe they are keen to just get at all the unearthed worms we’ve just made available!)
