Spring is coming and we’ve decided that it’s time to start doing something with the garden here at Blogstead Episcopi. Some may fancifully think that we’ll be laying out a series of interlocking gardens – formal, informal, cottage, sunken, etc. – through which I and members of the Cathedral Chapter will stroll as we discuss important ecclesiastical business. But it’s not quite like that. We have to create something which will cope with the fairly severe climate here .. and something which leads the eye out into the remarkable stretch of countryside in which we live … and which isn’t too demanding to keep. And we’re getting lots of helpful advice from those who really know about these things.
