I’m feeling optimistic about a garden in the near future!

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Especially when you haven’t had one for 10 years! (I’m not counting the pots, which have of course brought me countless pleasures).

  1. Nothing like thoughts of spring to bring a feeling of optimism. I would imagine it is amplified for you right now as you plan your new home 🙂

  2. Wow Jude 10 years without a garden. You’ll be so looking forward to coming out of the wilderness and into your own patch of earth. This year will be a good one for you.

    1. It will be nice just to have a space outdoors to sit in with a glass of wine and not have anyone walking past! And a herb garden (hence the herb photo) 🙂

      1. Ah yes herbs, the first things I plant each time I arrive back home. I am so happy I have found a perennial coriander, I love the sweet, tangy taste of it, but the annual ones just race away to seed in our summer climate.

      2. PS the nicest time of the day is in the coolish early evening, after pottering in the garden, to sit and contemplate with a glass of wine. I’ll raise a toast to you and your new “garden to be”Jude… 🙂

    1. Indeed not. It doesn’t take too long to throw a few bulbs in a pot in the autumn and we definitely reap the rewards from February onwards.
