What is it that you like about gardening?
Todays been a bit windy and a day for wearing a jumper,
I took half an hour away from the border i was planting verious flowers in when a couple called who've just arrived here in france and we two men folk sat and talked about what i liked ref gardening,
Well its a hobby you can do as a complete loner or as part of a group,
The fresh air and without really thinking about it your keeping your body moving in all directions,
And its that deafening sound of silence that you know is there and then the birds start to sing in the tree's,
Even weeding, I find weeding very relaxing and its not long after you start the weeding you soon find the bucket's full and your amazed at the amount you've removed" It didnt look like that many needed removing.
Even the start of the day when i can be found walking around the the garden a cup of coffee in hand inspecting what natures delivered over night "a bulb pushing through" the first rose opening, and then into the green house and again whats showing through the seed compost today or whats needing to be repotted etc, (And the half cup of coffee's gone cold)
For me the garden is not just something todo It's more its a place to think, a place to enjoy and a place i should really spend more time relaxing in
But i dont Ive always another new idea to try or a question to try and find the answer.
How do you see your gardening experience?
