I managed a few garden tasks this week – pruning the Cornus and attending to the front garden. It only has a small border and sometimes gets neglected but a new spring resolution is to treat this as border to attract wildlife as well. (I find March a much better month for making changes in life, with a feeling of hope in the air maybe there’s a better chance change will stick).
I’ve also resolved to try to cut my garden centre habit and make much better use of re-cycling materials for container gardening, growing flowers from seed – I may even arrange a Spring Plant Swap at my children’s school (I’ve only just thought of that – amazing what ideas pop into your head when you give yourself some head space).
The most exciting news is that I may be getting involved in a local community garden project. More of this next week hopefully – anyway it’s very cool and has given me a spring in my step despite the clouds (no gardener can begrudge a bit of rain, it’s the deluges that we don’t like).
Finally – the photo. Yes there was sun. I’m glad I took photographic evidence of a short pause for breath. After all – sitting back to enjoy the garden is solace indeed.
