Happy birthday blog

It’s just over two years since I started blogging.  I’m still not entirely sure why I started but it’s been much more fun than I imagined.  I don’t have a a record of everything that’s happened in my garden over these two years, but I do have a record of some of the things it’s made me think about.  I’ve made some new online friends and discovered a world of other people’s blogs.  I’ve found blogging to be a refuge from the wider world: a place to celebrate what is wonderful about nature and the joy of growing things (with the occasional slug to dampen the spirits). I intended to illustrate it with my own drawings but that hasn’t happened – maybe next year. In the meantime here’s some rather random  photos from the last couple of years – do have a wander about and have a look at some of my old posts – but, in the meantime, keep reading,keep gardening and keep blogging away. Most of all, enjoy the flowers
