Nice to see you back Punkdoc - great news about your mum and what a fantastic job you've landed. I really envy you the opportunity to go & do some proper whale spotting. It's lovely when some nice things start to fall into place - especially when you've had a bit of a rough few weeks.
Hoping for a day without showers tomorrow so I can get out in the garden again & do some dividing & seed sowing.
I think one of the reasons we gardeners are a happier bunch is because we are always looking forward to the nicer things in life - planning for spring & summer when everyone else is bemoaning the onset of dark nights & colder days & enjoying the fruits of our labours in the spring & summer. I also don't know a selfish gardener - we always want to share - whether it's knowledge, seeds, cuttings, produce or even time to help a friend get on top of their plot. I genuinely think that makes us nicer, happier people
