Hugh, Darrell has said, has been absolutely effusing about this years Chelsea Flower Show …….. sadly, he hadn’t been able to exhibit himself this year, due to showbiz commitments, but he had given advice to several of the other exhibitionists, two of whom had won quite significant prizes!
And as such, his flat was overflowing with blooms from those grateful aforementioned significant prize winners …..
….. which had been muchly admired by Darrell.
….. Hugh is very naturally proud of his own bijoux jardin du Londres and was particularly thrilled with the solar lights Darrell had bought for him …… “Oh Darrell, one can never, ever, EVER, have too many lights dans le jardin….. ” he said “….. so long as zay are tasteful, well chosen and subtly and unobtrusively positioned”
Darrell and Hugh then strolled a while
dans in Hugh’s beautiful jardin …..
….. with Darrell asking many questions, as, as you know, he is presently project managing the renovation of the bottom of Castle Greysquirrel’s
“Go with your instinct Darrell, create zee illusion of zee space, with zee hidden nooks and zee hidden crannies, nothing is, how you say, taboo ……if you like it, boldly plant it or position it (if it is not zee plant)”
The pages of Darrell’s Alan Titchmarch’s Gardeners Notebook were much scribbled on ………… Hugh had given him much food for thought ….
