I have tried several attempts to make a video of the garden. The first made me feel sick to watch it. The second one invaded the Pianist’s privacy. I walked straight past him sitting in his chair reading and didn’t notice I was filming him as I was so focused on my Rosa banksiae ‘Lutea’. I said did it really matter, he wasn’t picking his nose or anything. He said that wasn’t the only problem, you could hardly hear a word I said and why was I whispering. I was whispering because I felt a silly chump walking round the garden talking loudly to myself. Anyway I had another go, avoiding the Pianist in his hammock and declaiming loudly. This time after hours of trying, I couldn’t upload it to YouTube, ( or is it download, I can never remember the difference?) Apparently, it was too long. So here is my fourth effort; it’s still jerky but perhaps not quite as bad as the first one, there is no sign of the Pianist and I am not whispering. I haven’t shown all the garden and I finished rather abruptly when I realised I was running out of time. And I missed out lots of roses that are looking great right now. But maybe, if I can get this onto YouTube I will try again another time and show you the the parts I missed. You never got to see my vegetable garden or my greenhouse.
By the way, the hosta I showed you just before the abrupt end is ‘Sum and Substance’.
