Leaving my garden

Posted: 31/10/2013 at 22:06

Thank you I wasn't expecting to feel this way about plants!

In my new home I will have a small garden but plenty of opportunities for having some extra land. I hope to have a proper space to grow veggies and maybe some chickens. Will pick out some to take with me and start again

Leaving my garden

Hello everyone, an unexpected opportunity has come up and I'm moving, which is great the down side is that I'm leaving my garden and all the lovely plants that I've grown and planted

I'm moving to a lovely place up country lanes which is peaceful and beautiful. I don't care about the property I'm leaving but so sad to be leaving the garden. It did so well this year, I had loads of insects and butterflies

Will try and take some of my plants with me, but don't have the space or the time to move them all. I'm in such a dilemma as to what to take and what to leave behind. I know in my heart that I can grow them again, but it feels sad to leave them behind and the chances are that they won't be appreciated by the new tenants or the landlord.

I've been here for nearly 3 years and didn't think I would feel this way, when I started out

I used to think that I would remember what I planted in the garden and what seeds I've sown, learnt that's not the case at all. Each spring it's still a surprise The garden changes so much over the year, I forget quickly

Great photos, I really enjoy looking at them. The white peacock is stunning, I would imagine that they are quite rare?

That is a lovely  photo James, I'm sure your son is very happy with it
