My hanker for gardening has increased tenfold, I am beginning to pace the floor.  The seed delivery salved the itch a little, but I need more exercise and fresh air and company to be happy.  The weather has been so dreadful that I haven’t even been able to get outside into our own desolate plot.  On one hand this pleases me as I would have lost many days work if I hadn’t been on my sabbatical, justifying my decision.  On the other hand the relentless gloom is wearing.  So I have been feeling a little low.  There has been sighing.

Then singing.  On the right day.  It was wonderful.  And non-fattening.

At the end of next week I shall be re-released into the horticultural world and I am champing at the bit.  Watch out, I’m on my way and I’m going to be annoyingly enthusiastic!

  1. I empathise, I sometimes sit in my little green house cursing grey skies and the gloomy weather. Daily I walk down my garden to inspect the Daphne that is still tantalisingly in tight bud. I have stopped standing up my garden chairs as this seems to cause yet another set of gale force winds to blow them down again, then I remember that it is still January, patience is a virtue.


  2. Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( https://www.instagram.com/tayo_home/ ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.



    • Sorry for the delay in replying, you are put into spam, I think it was because of the link you put in your comment. Thanks for your comments, you are right, I love animals, and your cats are absolutely beautiful!


  3. It was dry for a couple of hours this afternoon so out I went and quickly got muddy wellies and coat. I too am dreaming of better weather and more gardening.
