Is that an old condom, on the right, in the third photograph down?

Some beautiful flowers.
I hated gardening when I had a huge area to keep under control, and could never find the time.
My garden now is a balcony and patio with loads of tubs, pots, baskets etc. It is now a pleasure.

Lilith said...

No, Modo. It is something altogether less tasteful.

Thank you Ratty. I discovered gardening helping out a friend with hers about 6 years ago. I couldn't wait to have my own and now I lament my lack of space! No room for flowering shrubs or trees....

So beautiful. I wish I would make the time, and find the motivation to do something beautiful with my garden. I'm only renting and the agents are assholes. I've made it tidy and neat, but it could be alot prettier. If they were less obnoxious and I knew i was staying here, then i'd have no problem spending the money and time to make it as beautiful as yours.

I get a real feel of serenity from nature. x

I sympathise Ms Smack. I was aching for a bit of dirt to bother for a while before I had some. When I first moved here I had a type of tourette's which involved involuntarily barking at the air:

"GET ORFF MOY LAAAND!"

I still address gastropods in a similar manner.

We did our front garden last year and it now looks lovely - palms and cacti and rockery.

The back garden is small and square and needs doing this year - your work is inspiring me.

The old house I used to live in had 140 feet of garden in total and I used to manage the land round our church which was about an acre. I was continually exhausted at certain times of year (noone to help when the Vicar was ill with pancreaitis). I'm sure it put me off gardening, but this looks lovely - or is it just my age ?

Toodles.
