Despite my ever-neglectful approach to gardening, I am lucky to have a garden full of colour at the moment. My succulents and other hardy plants are blooming and sprouting all over the place – I love the little buds and new growth. It’s always amazing to me that such beautiful things can develop from my sad efforts at green-thumbery.
Everything needs re-potting and moving – you can see in some of the photos how the poor little buggers are reaching desperately for the sun and light – but, as I myself am moving very soon, they will have to wait a bit longer. Hopefully everything will survive the move and the new surroundings. I don’t know what kind of sun/light situation I will have at the new place, whether my garden will be in shadow or full sun for most of the day – this remains to be determined (ie I didn’t actually think about it at the time of purchase).
I’ve noticed a few early tulips coming up in my neighbour’s garden – every year they have a beautiful display of bulbs and annuals. Maybe down the track I will try those too, when I am settled and feel I have properly put down roots of my own. Not sure how long that will take and whether I will feel right at home straight away. I really do hope so. I’m going to try. I need a place to call my own and to be proud of and want to welcome people into.
I hope to grow some vegetables and herbs, as well as purely decorative plants. It’s so nice to cook with produce you have grown yourself and makes everything taste that little bit better. I have lots of plans – let’s see how many come to fruition! You know I will document both my successes and failures 🙂
Enjoy today, wherever you are, and try and see some beauty in it, if you can x
