Progress

A few weeks ago I had an empty pot sink. A few plants were added. All documented on these pages…

I’ve filled in a few of the gaps now. It’s not art. Its not garden design. But it has been fun, and I hope it will develop into something quite eye-catching over the summer.

Meet the new arrivals:

In other areas, I’ve still got tulips, and there are lots of hazy forget-me-nots!

Miniature World

Moss growing in a plant pot. The most ordinary thing in the world, you might think. You might even want get rid of it, to make the pot look tidier.

Please don’t! Not before you’ve had a careful look at it anyway.

Moss green. Green moss. With the sun shining on it. It’s beautiful, calming, cool and soothing.

If you look very closely at it, you could almost imagine yourself in a primeval forest.

Change your focus…

A miniature world right there in your garden!

Ringlet

I’ve realised with a shock how long it is since I last wrote anything on here. So I’m planning to make amends, and dip my toes back in the water, by posting pictures of some of the wildlife I’ve seen this summer. Starting with a ringlet butterfly. I’d never seen one before, although I don’t think they are uncommon, so I was very excited!

 

Garden Journal

Getting started …

I’ve been thinking for a while about starting an informal little garden journal. Just a notebook really, with possibly some of my own drawings in it when I’ve established the habit. I started on April 3rd, a day of some significance for me for other reasons, and I can tell by the handwriting that I was enjoying the process of writing it.

Nothing much has been added since, unfortunately, because I’ve had so many other things to do, but Easter weekend seems a good time to pick up the threads and start work again, both in the garden and the journal.

Wish me luck!
