Hi lezdennis, I fully understand what you are talking about having come through maybe something similar to yourself. Gardening, which I only took up about five years ago has helped me so much. It has revealed a part of me that I never new existed. I feel I have grown and healed so much and it has been and continues to be a beautiful journey, and an ongoing healing for me. There is nothing like being in a garden, I just I love it all. It has opened up a whole new way of life to me.

I didn't realise it was the first day of spring today, but after having said that I think spring came for me inspite of the cold weather, more like winter today....maybe that's why I forgot. I have spent the afternoon sewing Cosmos seeds and now I have quite a few containers on my window ledge. Even though I live in a flat I do grow things and last year I was thrilled when I was able to successfully grow Cosmos seed. This morning when I was out I had my usual coffee and muffin and started planning in my mind some of the things I need to do in the garden that I look after, it was like the bulb of spring within me starting to unfold her petals and open up.

I trod in some dog pooh the other week when I was out in the garden, it was soft and went into all the grooves in my wellies, nightmare of a job to clean and nobody came near me for a week.
