I was able to do a few hours in the garden today and it has been mind blowing.
The garden doesn't care if it is untidy or needs a bit of straightening up .
It GROWS despite me ... and in a way I am very glad of that .. no matter how much tweaking it may need it refuses to be off put by my neglect ...
IT IS ALIVE and KICKING .. phew !
But ? we are in for a ride with the weather ... it has been a weird Spring as it is but the rain is coming back with a vengeance ... up to 45 mm supposedly through Friday ...
I looked back at my old diary from last year and by the 7th I had already bought loads of herbs , soil, compost ... so I still have time to squeak by ? maybe ?
Mean while a few pictures to illustrate the garden is running whether I am caring for it or not !
The daffs are supposed to follow the curve completely , but I screwed up with the count to the other side .. and ? this is after some substantial rainfall so they look rather sad.
One of my oldest Japanese maples .. it stings to lose it .. and I'll never know the whole truth of what happened to it ... so I am on the hunt for a replacement once I get out and going again.
