In my last post, I mentioned that my garden needs a lot of work done and it is just not going to happen this year. Despite this, I do love flowers and plants. My mum loved gardening and I was brought up with beautiful gardens. When I had my own home, she used to love coming round and planting summer bedding for me. Often, apart from winter, whenever I visited mum and dad they were busy out in the garden. Mum would be on her knees digging, weeding and planting. She kept this up for most of her life till sadly she had Alzheimers and eventually went into a nursing home. I returned last year to the home where I spent most of my childhood. I walked slowly past and the garden still showed the loving labours of my parents when they landscaped the land, putting in different levels, a pond, walls, paths, steps and crazy paving.
I decided to have a go at putting some photos I took of my garden nursery haul into a slide show. I believe that no matter how difficult things are, beauty can be found in life, no matter how small, in amongst the complex nature of our lives.
