The Journey Begins

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.
