Writing & Kew Gardens

Writing & the Bluebells
Kew Gardens is a wonderful place to walk at the end of the writing day, or indeed in the middle if a sticking point has been reached. And the bluebells are simply magical. These are the native English bluebells, which are more delicate that the Spanish ones. We have Spanish ones in our garden, they have self-seeded and are very rampant. They are pretty too, but sadly they can overtake the more delicate native ones, so they have to be kept well away from them.
