Just the best place in the world.
The place that enabled me to get over the worst of my depression and gave me the belief that there was still something that I could do well.
Much of my life has not returned to normal, but the garden keeps me happy [ ish ] and gives my life purpose.
Hope that doesn't sound to miserable.
doc - it's everything you want it to be and encourages looking forward rather than back. I hope it will do that for you more and more
I'm with you re being creative Verd. That's really the bit I enjoy most.
all of the above.
Let's hope you get a lot more from it Punkdoc.
And no, it didn't sound miserable.
Yes definitely a sanctuary, I don't care about the house nearly as much as the garden. We built a summer house with a woodburner in at the bottom so we can get away from it all and enjoy it in summer and winter. The minute I get back from work I go and look at the garden
It is a place of work, a place of rest, a place of dreams........these days I am a wild gardener encouraging birds is a top priority.
Reading all the above has put a smile on my face... living with a non-gardener I sometimes feel I have to justify my obsession, but not with you lot cos you absolutely understand.
My OH does have redeeming features though... we've been together 40 years.
