Ethel and I worked in the garden.


Ethel refers to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin. For more details of their gardening see Chapter 109.

  1. Great post! I love reading about people’s experiences and memories in gardening. It’s so cool that you got to work with your grandmother Ethel. I’m curious, what inspired both of you to take up gardening?

    1. Thanks for your comment and for finding the blog. My grandparents were extremely keen gardeners – and so was my mother. I am not sure what inspired them. They lived in a pretty industrial place initially so perhaps an escape from that? I think you know that my main focus is on my grandfather’s and mother’s diaries which cover 1914 to 2016. But, I now realise that there is quite a lot of material about gardening in them.
