Every day that passes I become more like my Grandad (sadly now departed).
It's raining and I think "That'll be good for the garden".
Kids playing football in the garden... "Be careful of the flowers!!!!"
Dog running amock through my veg patch - dog 'gently persuaded' to leave!
Buying a decent nail brush to get the compost out from under my nails.
Overall finding please in getting muddy fingers and pottering about in my greenhouse.
I only wish he was still about to share his passion and knowledge with me and to take pride in what I've achieved in my garden through being inspired by him as a child.
Bit of an emotional post there, Palaisglide, off on a bit of a tangent from your original post but thanks for taking me on that journey!!
