You all know that I really like where I reside, and I feel deeply blessed to be exactly where I am. There is a deep and ancient spirituality to the land, which you can’t fail to feel open your heart and your spirit, throw open wide your welcoming arms, and it will softly ooze into each and every corner of your becoming, connecting you on levels you have never known just before. I have a couple of garden tote bags hanging up on the back of the door of my garden tool shed when not in use which I locate incredibly beneficial. When I say behind your garden shed I do not imply the little gap among your shed and boundary wall, hedge or fence, I mean what’s around the corner at the end of your shed. Considering that most gardens branch out from a patio, deck or terrace, the design and style of these spaces should go hand-in-hand with your garden.
Then when I walked the garden space I stared at the modest pile of rocks which started the whole procedure, and realized, how far I had come from a pile of brush piled in my neighbors yard, to a garden region, the plants in the greenhouse and in planters about the yard, and the foundation for a new beginning come spring.
Soon after constructing the garden shed the wedge of land behind it was largely occupied by a thick hedge and a household of hedgehogs or rather they employed it as their nightly run to forage for meals. This is not exactly how I wanted to open this weblog, but it does lead into what being in the Garden has meant to me this year. Excellent ideas, i wanted some containers for my kitchen garden.. extremely useful indeed!
One of the things we can do, climate permitting of course, is to go out for rides in the countryside and make some new, pleased memories to cherish as we go to garden centres ~ ones with tea rooms, naturally go out for lunch or afternoon tea just go for a ride to see fairly scenery in reality, quite much anything.
And far more importantly for the hedgehogs, into my final garden landscaping designs I incorporated a hedgehog tunnel connecting the adjoining gardens which I am pleased to say they nonetheless use to this day on their nightly runs in search of food.
