In the Garden …
I have a beautiful garden. For nearly 30 years I have lovingly tended it; planting anything that will cope with semi shade and those that will attract wildlife. It has been mostly successful, although I grumble at the pigeons, neighbour’s cats and a pesky squirrel.
I sit for many hours even after dark with a little brazier enjoying the peace and quiet.
This weekend I bought some bare rooted hedging and a little quince tree. The hedging will fill a few gaps and attract a few more birds and the quince is loved by bees I believe; but I just love the fruit and already looking forward to harvesting them next autumn. I am now looking out for a crab apple to plant along side; it might be a bit of a squeeze … but I will find space.
