“The garden is one of the two great metaphors for humanity.
The garden is about life and beauty and the impermanence of all living things.
The garden is about feeding your children, providing food for the tribe.
It’s part of an urgent territorial drive that we can probably trace back to animals storing food.
It’s a competitive display mechanism, like having a prize bull, this greed for the best tomatoes and English tea roses.
It’s about winning; about providing society with superior things; and about proving that you have taste, and good values, and you work hard.
And what a wonderful relief, every so often, to know who the enemy is.
Because in the garden, the enemy is everything: the aphids, the weather, time.
And so you pour yourself into it, care so much, and see up close so much birth, and growth, and beauty, and danger, and triumph.
And then everything dies anyway, right?
But you just keep doing it.” – Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

    I think we’ve reached that stage of appreciation for the calm and joy a garden can bring! I love being in ours, though it currently is so vast I don’t know where to start. I mowed the lawn in the evening sun and it was beautiful last night. Potting flowers and seeds is so satisfying and I’m looking forward to learning more. Like you, I’ve always been in and around the garden so I feel I know the basics, but I’m still waiting for everything to fully bloom before I can work out what is weed and what is there to keep.

      Reached an age where I want to spend Sundays at the garden centre and am seriously considering getting National Trust membership… fully turning into my Mum! But it is so satisfying! Really picks my mood up like few other things ^_^ xxx
