Who Dunnit?


Jon Brook with the housemaid characterEvery Christmas, Paul Langdon and Jon Brook, those very affable gents from Langdon European, kindly invite a few of us from QVC to a yuletide celebration. Last Friday, we went to a hotel in Baker Street for a Murder Mystery evening with Sherlock Holmes in attendance.

The 'murder' occurred during the meal and the guests, including Jon (pictured with one of the cast, a rather cheeky housemaid) had to solve the murder. I hadn't a clue who did it and I still don't as I was talking so much that I missed the announcement as to who did it and why. But it was a cracking evening and great fun.

It's been a quiet few weeks in the garden. I've moved my Bay Trees into the greenhouse to give them extra winter protection, cut back lots of the hardy perennials ( but not those like sedums and grasses that look pretty in the frost) and hung up a special bird feeder that I'm filling with Val's reject xmas cake( she forgot it was in the oven!). I've also planted the last of the tulips, a large clump of stunning orange flowered 'Ballerina' which should look amazing next spring.

That's just one of the things I'm looking forward to in the New Year. All gardenrs are optimists and I'm very excited about the coming season. On QVC we're introducing some superb new plants and products, and I've a feeling it's going to be our best year ever. Part of me can't wait for the season to start. But there's a bit more celebrating to do in the meantime.

Wishing everyone a very merry Xmas and a Happy New Year,
