I first saw kokedama being described on Gardeners' World earlier in the year. Kokedama is a plant that is growing in a ball of moss, held together with string and then tied up so that they dangle. Just think 1970s macrame plant hangers but with a twist (or should I say more moss?). I confess I was not totally bowled over by what I saw of them and dismissed them to the back of my mind.
I went to Easton Walled Gardens the other day where I saw some close up for the first time.
These beautiful creations were made by Alexandra.
More about visiting Easton Walled Gardens to see snowdrops can be found here.
As I was writing this I was humming CopaCabana by Barry Manilow, well, actually I was humming CocaCabana, a song Barry Manilow did not write but I have misheard for the past 38 years. It was only when double checking I was spelling it correctly for this blog that I learned my mistake. I gift this earworm to you, pronounced however you wish.
