GPAP – The Rediscovery

IMG_3920

I found it in the garden today and I hadn’t realised that it was lost.

It has been a forever twilight day, dank and uninviting.  With feet dragging slightly and a lope of indifference, I went outside to do some necessary work, it was duty rather than desire.  Within minutes it came over me, that old feeling.  The one that sends us out into the garden in night-clothes and wellies before breakfast , the one that keeps us there until a head torch is necessary.  And with this rediscovery came the thrill, the joy, the comfort.

This is dangerous, I thought, with a secret grin.  This is great.

  1. It only takes an hour or two out in the garden and the joy comes back. Am off out right now to do some hardwood cuttings of Cornus ‘Midwinter Fire’ and ‘Flaviramea’ which are looking beautiful in the hazy sunshine.

  2. “The one that sends us out into the garden in night-clothes and wellies before breakfast”: I know this feeling! I do tend to get reinvigorated at this time of the year, with tiny crimson leaf buds on rose bushes and and tree peonies. Oh! It’s starting up again!
