This episode is subtitled: ‘Where’s Kim when I need her…?’
‘My garden’s not looking too bad,’ I said, ‘now that the leaves are coming through on the shrubs and my miniature rhododendrons are starting to show signs of colour. Oh, and my Clematis Montana is so pretty, winding up over the roof of my neighbour’s pergola.’
Jaz wasn’t captivated by my chit-chat but I prattled on, nonetheless. I’d been feeling calmer about the Open Gardens event in May, thinking that I might not be too embarrassed when visitors arrive after all. I was just telling her about my idea for tubs of bedding plants for a splash of colour when Beryl bustled in, a bit late, taking advantage of the fact that Kim was away for a couple of days.
