Thanks for joining me!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
Why did I start this blog? Answers on a postcard, please…
I’m not good with journals and diaries, but here goes… There are three reasons, I suppose.
1 I’m making over my garden, and it’s getting to be a journey of exploration and high adventure. For example, last year, a well was discovered in the hedgerow. Who knew? This year the well is overflowing, what with all the rain. I wonder whether hawthorn likes growing in a bog? There are squirrels (grey: pitchfork, anyone?), rats (this rat poison costs a fortune!), partridges, pheasants, the neighbour’s cats and a brimstone butterfly. Well, lots of other wildlife, and even a large selection of plants.
2 I teach gardening (hobbyist level only!). I ought to share the disasters and triumphs (and even the asters and triumph tulips) with my friends and students.
3 I’ve been reading the Six on Saturday meme, and became inspired.
Here are the forget-me-not pools in the orchard.
Well, that’s my lunch break done. Onwards and upwards with the bindweed… Thanks for reading.
