OUT IN THE GARDEN: Here comes the plumb king
Things seem to have settled down nicely this week following the recent heavy rainfall. That said, my heart goes out to all those affected by the recent floods whose homes and gardens have been seriously damaged.
As we begin to approach the middle of the year, the majority of major gardening tasks have been completed and now is the time to slow down a little and enjoy the hard work you have put into your garden.
As I have tried to show throughout the year thus far the main enjoyment to be had from gardening is just simply being outside in the garden. There’s the sound of the wind blowing through the trees, the rustle of the tall grasses, the scent of herbs and flowers in the air, the gently trickling of water flowing in my pond plus the sound of birds calling in the tree tops. Then there’s all the other wildlife and insects that have made my garden their home. That’s the joy of gardening.
