This is my first blog for two years. No excuses – only reasons. We moved house, that needed a LOT of work before it was as we liked it. The garden was neglected and overgrown – that too has been dealt with over the 2+ years we have lived here, nearby the sea. We love it, especially the enormous magnolia in the front garden. We have both, Philip and I been on another journey, and now we can call this home.
Neither of us have been idle. We both prefer to be busy, Phil has built walls, cut new borders, widened others, shifted soil, reclaimed the garden to its original boundary, made trellis and re-fenced the entire length of the garden, to name but a few of the tasks undertaken. I have been gardening and working on a collection of poems, which is due for release at the beginning of October. I have also been working on a family history book about Phil’s family (during the winter months), revising The Haphazard Gardener and compiling another collection of poems, which I hope to publish later in the year.
