Oh dear. The G word. I think plants wish they had legs so they could run when they see me coming. I'm not very good in the garden. I don't loathe gardening but I would like it better if I was better at it.
I adore gardening and seeing something grow and develop from the care I take gives me much pleasure. All it takes is a bit of watering, pruning and fertilising and you too can have a productive, beautiful garden. Its the gift of life that keeps on giving. Seeing some colour in the garden brightens my day.
I love gardening when we have adequate rain to keep things looking good. I have a large garden , but during drought it is depressing. I look at the garden as an extension of the house with rooms with different functions.
I don't mind it, but I just don't get the time, I used to enjoy planting different flowers, but I don't do that any more, although the lsast flowers aI did plant were irises I love the different varieties.
