My passion is gardening. Given half the chance, I would be outdoors doing something whatever the weather.
But the weather has been so unpredictable here, that much of my work has come to a standstill. I have had some work done in the back garden recently, that being extra paving to accommodate a large table and chairs, a raised bed for the children to grow vegetables, a pergola at the patio to grow my Russian Vine (mile-a-minute) and climbing roses and lastly, a decked area which is more of a platform really to even up the sloping, waterlogged back lawn!
Each year, myself and the girls plant seeds. They really enjoy the whole process of opening the seed packets, filling the little pots with compost, making a hole with a pencil, dropping in the seed, checking the seed went in, a few times(!) covering the seed, watering, then looking every few minutes for the rest of the day and asking……”Where are the flowers Mummy?”
