Fun in the Garden
Like many of us under lockdown the past couple of weeks, I've had a bit of a spring clean, both in the home and the garden. Yesterday I turned my attention to a huge bag of garden stuff accumulated over the years from various events and realised here was an opportunity to inject some fun into the garden.
Our gardens are fast becoming our sanctuaries and a healing space for our times, but oh yes, some fun is needed now more than ever. I felt a little down on Friday and a cheerful task in the fresh air was just what I needed. Half an hour or so's work and my little flowerpot man now greets me as I step into the garden as do my welcome flowers. I rescued the arch from the bottom of the garden last year and decided it was crying out for the string of solar lights I'd found in my bag. Childlike I couldn't wait for it to get dark yesterday evening so I could admire my handiwork and was delighted the moon joined me for the photo session.
Skipper and Spot are always entertaining when we sit in the garden at break time. As you can see Skipper's taken it one paw further by regularly climbing next door's garage roof.
A rather timely book also arrived yesterday, with an appropriate bookmark for these times, courtesy of Wordery. I look forward to devouring the contents to see which ideas I can incorporate into VP Gardens. In the meantime, I think a little fun is a good start, don't you?
