Just beginning five weeks of parental leave from my other job. Where I see an image of relaxation, as do my envious colleagues as they wish me a lovely holiday, little do they know I have five weeks of hard graft ahead, Sarah already has a list of Brian jobs to be completed. Will do me no harm as it will be like a boot camp where I get toned and bronzed (or lashed with rain).

My instructions for the week.

Please note that The Secret Garden is no longer operating as a garden centre, we are now offering floristry services, wedding flowers, flowers for funerals and other occassions. We also host courses and other events in gardening and floral displays and Sarah is available to do talks for organisations and at events all over Munster.
