Finally….the doors to The Simple Owl Shop are open, rather the virtual doors, and I am so very excited and nervous all at once! I have been planning this for a long time and without knowing it I have been so afraid to make this step. The product was delivered ages ago, the shop was ready to go…. but I kept holding back. I know it goes against everything I preach, but this time my nerves were getting the better of me!
Every year Altamont Gardens (Carlow, Ireland) hosts ‘Snowdrop Week’. It’s a wonderful event for any gardening enthusiasts or anyone who just fancies learning something new. I am a little bit of both…well more the latter! The tour was guided by head gardener Paul Cutter, who has a wealth of knowledge. He brought us through the different varieties, their origin, identifying markings and optimal growing conditions.
