Did I say that?
Did I really say that the garden was boring?! The first thing I want to do when I get up in the morning now is check how the plants are doing! No two days are the same, there is always something new to see or discover. These Crocosmia (I'll forget that again in five minutes from now!) popped up in the rockery this week. They are one of my favourites and that colour combination of red, orange, purple and green is another!
The rose bush is bursting with buds again. We're buying more this week so this bed will be full of roses.
The garden is teaching me to be still, look and listen. I had never watched a spider making a web before, or rather I had looked briefly and thought I knew how a spider made a web. If you've never done this, you really should! It's amazing to see the spider making the general structure and then building it up with such precision. That tiny little thing has a purpose and it just gets on with the business. The web gets destroyed by the weather, debris, us and it just starts all over again. No ifs, buts, what's my motivation here?, is it art?, is it the best? angst that we humans have!
