Work is in progress to get the ramshackle bits of the garden tidied up. After creating two steps out of our double doors with paviors and the path from the greenhouse there’s still a bit left over. I will move some more bits around and pull up some more weeds. I can’t shift the biggest logs but I need to tidy the woodpile the rat scampered through. Gloves on for that job for sure!
Housekeeping for gardens, that was often what it felt like when I worked as a gardener. It means that I realise that much of what is needed in my own garden is tidying and weeding. The grass does need doing again and that is never-ending. Administration for my blog was never my strong point either, but I am welcoming huge numbers of readers after Momentum mentioned my blog. You are all most welcome to watch my garden grow.
I am hoping to be able to visit some of the gardens that have been closed over lockdown and continue taking photos which show the loveliness of nature. I will never be a ‘neat freak’ but I appreciate that the messy corners give some hope to ‘newbie’ gardeners who have taken on their own patches of ‘nature’. Send me your pictures!
Five years in this garden and this year more than most has seen me lugging lots of heavy stuff but even I know I have to pace those jobs. I have Easter holidays for two weeks, April starts tomorrow, and things are growing in the greenhouse. I could plant more to give me more plants, I have loads of seeds, and I could challenge myself to have little pockets of calm in all of the garden. The shed hit a hiatus when we realised we have to pay two organisations if we want permission to change our sheds around? We have already lost one shed but we need to check the legalities of replacing it… Heyho.
