is it just me?
I've got into gardening or at least I thought I had because I have to find something to occupy my other half when she isn't working - so we started doing the garden together. It has taken us 7 years to really get started but it is looking a lot better now our second full wheelie bin full of weeds has gone. everything is looking much tidier, the blackthorn hedge I put in a couple of years ago was stunningly beautiful if a bit thin, the bird boxes that I put up six years ago has had their first visitors and now has residents but our newly plated rose is covered in greenfly, the slugs and snails think the cabbages have been installed as their local Mcdonalds alternative and the pigeons love the lettuces. If that isn't disheartening enough I subscribed to the magazine and waited and waited in sheer enthusiastic high expectation only to find that it arrived with no seeds and no 2 for 1 entry to the gardens booklet or card. I'm beginning to go off gardening altogether - the excitement has turned into rather a dissapointment.
