I joined this wonderful group a few months ago and I am excited to have been asked to speak at the next meeting. Please come if you can, it’s a lovely (and large) group, with lots of resources for members: a lending library, tea and coffee, a garden expert you can ask your questions of, plants to buy, a monthly workshop, draws and a monthly speaker.
I hope you can come along on June 6, at 7:30
Despite the weather, we’re going to assume that Spring is on it’s way. To date, I haven’t documented in a proper garden journal my progress in the greenhouse. However, I do take a lot of pictures which helps me remember what a planted each year, combinations, successes, ahem “learnings”. Here is an image from a couple of years ago. It reminded me to take out my nest to set it up for the Spring season in the greenhouse (where it is out of the wind and so much cozier than the outside world at this point). I’m looking forward to having time to have tea and do some seed starting tomorrow.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you have a moment to enjoy the change of seasons,
An image from my book which is what my dream house looks like today, except there is no reflection of green lawn in the background. Not yet. We are going to have all the roots dug up from the hazardous poplar that was removed before a rather big windstorm. I am re-thinking the flower and veggie beds (and should be wearing my realism glasses as to how much time I will really have for the garden this summer….where are those glasses anyway, I think I’ve misplaced them again!)
I hope on this International Women’s Day you will have a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come, how far we have yet to go, and how we can support the change that is necessary for our daughters to live in a world where they are equal.
It seems so many people have posted that today is the first day of spring, but sadly it’s not until March 20th. Although we are having glimpses…
Here is a picture from the book of a couple of years ago when my husband and Daisy, our golden retriever, were sitting having tea with me in the greenhouse. At this time of year, when it can be windy and cool or warm in the sun (but only if you are moving around and cool when you sit still), I like to enjoy my greenhouse with the door closed. Again this year, I have bought some hyacinths in so that the scent permeates the space… and Spring seems a little closer than 19 days…
I hope that today you have a moment to enjoy the place you are in. I’m planning on taking my tea out, enjoying the scent of the hyacinths and dreaming of what to plant.
As my book goes out into the world, it’s lovely to hear how it is seen by thoughtful people like Kelly Korbin who refers to my book on this blog. Thank you Kelly!
