I am a day dreamer and romantic. I like to write stories and poetry, read a good book, and tend my garden. I live deep in the heart of the countryside and love being surrounded by all that nature has to offer. My camera and journal are never far from my side as I try to record each and every moment of what is important to me.
As this will be the last post for the year 2011 I decided to show photographs which epitomise my garden through the year. I like to nurture a wild, overgrown look where possible - letting self-seeders do their thing and encouraging nature to take over but keeping some control. On the whole I have been successful this year, keeping the borders full of plants is a sure way to keep the weeds down. I have lots of plans for the flower garden next year - sowing more wild flower seeds and keeping the more blowsier plants confined to patio pots. The more books I read about natural gardening the more plans I make for the future. Exciting times to come. I doubt if I will ever get the garden as I would really wish it to be - but I am going to have a lot of fun trying.
Thank you to everyone who visits this blog and for all your kind comments - I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New year.
