Erysimum 'Bowles' Mauve' about to flower in January
Thanks to the eagle eyes of Anna at Green Tapestry, I was alerted to a rather splendid bit of news yesterday. The Telegraph had published a piece called 'The gardening bloggers you should be following' and, to my amazement, the Urban Veg Patch got a mention! Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather.
Of course, I was a bit player in a stellar cast - other blogs mentioned may be familiar: Rusty Duck blog written by Jessica, David Marsden aka The Anxious Gardener, Jono Stevens writing at Real Men Sow and, to show we mere mortals are in excellent company, Tom Stuart-Smith, garden designer of renown. I didn't know he even had a blog but will definitely be checking that out. I met him last year and can tell you that he's a truly nice person. And I mean that in the best possible sense of that rather overused adjective.
Many thanks to Francine for her article and to everyone who has ever popped over to read my blog - your support is so much appreciated. Cheers!
