An A-Z of magazine life: G…

G is for: Gardening.  Another very popular part of the magazine. Many years ago, it was written by someone who enjoyed using words such as “thrusting” (out of the soil) “moist” (said soil, I presume) “erect” (plant stems?) and “creamy globes” (of flowers, I hope) with rather too much enthusiasm for a family-friendly magazine.

I once wrote a short, hopefully amusing feature for the magazine on why I preferred my garden in the winter.  I expected an avalanche of complaints and ridicule but received none. I expect they were all too busy outside.  I mean, it’s not normal, is it? Who else can say they prefer winter over summer? I explained my reasons in great length at the time and I’m not going to bore you with them now (maybe some other time).
