Addresses of handsome suitors? Well sort of. Handsome suitors for the new garden! This is my garden ideas/dreams book.
We had our last garden for almost twenty years and there are lots of photos of it scattered around this blog. But it belongs to someone else now.
We will have a new garden. I am so excited about that. When we viewed houses we had to concentrate on the location, interior and sort of hold back from just falling for something with outside space. In one way this was difficult. In a another the decision to refuse anything that was all decking, all concrete and no privacy or potential made some choices easy to make.
Some things from my old garden have come along in pots. I will never grow an American pillar rose again as I learnt the hard way that mildew is a fighter I don’t wish to do battle with.
I am looking forward to this new garden telling me what it needs, what works, what will happily grow. Gardens have a way of letting you know how they want to go. No plans to impose something in the first few weeks by spending a fortune on fully grown plants. This new garden will never be ‘done’. It will always be changing, growing, developing and as we nurture it, it will nurture us in return.
But while I wait I thought I had to do something to channel my excitement – and so the black book. Filling up with ideas. Dreams.
