Yes indeed fake119961, my garden to me is "something special".
As a healthy (I think) non smoker and general tightwad the physical outdoor scene and having the facility to grow food economically...organically of course....appeals. The hard physical work now and then is satisfying too. Eating fruit and veg without the use of any chemicals.....
having no creative talent ...cannot paint, draw, sculpt etc.....I can express myself with plants using colour, form, shape and scent to create something pleasing
A place of solace. A place to gather with family and friends or a place to be alone.
An all year round enjoyment.....how do non gardeners get through the dark and cold days after christmas? Gardeners see their emerging hellebores and snowdrops and other signs of spring instead.
Working with nature.....appreciating the habitat I can provide for birds, bees, butterflies, hedgehogs, even the odd fox.
what else gives so much?
couldn't really live without a garden fake119961
