England is a nation of gardeners. Hyacinths are fragrant right now.
Daffodils are still in bloom, and bluebells are just coming into season. Bluebells are a protected species; they carpet forest floors.
Garden gates beckon.
Fiddlehead ferns are just coming up. They’re a delicacy in salads, I’m told. These belong to the Queen, on her estate in Sandringham.
Every gardener is an artist. A gardener at the Tudor mansion Blickling Hall, reputed birthplace of Anne Boleyn, composed a beautiful study in blues and purples.
I love England in April!
