Flower of the Day Challenge: #1 Gazinia


One of my favourite summer flowers, a Gazinia, easy to grow from seed and with startling bright colours that sparkle in the sun. Today it’s snowing in the English Cotswolds though browsing through my summer album is brightening the day.

    • Thank you. Just what I needed on this cold, locked down, glum day. 😂 For years I mostly grew vegetables in our garden, but 2 years ago I started with flower seeds and am now addicted! A great way to spend a summers day provided there’s a glass of wine to hand 🍷👍👍

        • Thank you SO much, I really appreciate that. I didn’t write it for any financial gain but wanted to occupy my mind during the long lockdown across the year. My thoughts of 50 years of wine as a hobby just poured out of me, nothing too technical or pretentious, just holidays, experiences and incidents. I hope you like it, do keep in touch via any comments or questions as you go! 🙏🙏🙏
