what does your garden mean to you

For me its spiritual, a small place where time stands still. Where the rest of this frantic world with out notice beyond my natures hedges goes whirling by.

    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  image

    I'm with you re being creative Verd. That's really the bit I enjoy most.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    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 image

    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.

     

    Based in Sussex, I garden to encourage as many birds to my garden as possible.

    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.  image
