I love to garden, but last autumn I got so overwhelmed by it that I wrote this to re-find my GardenHeart. Then I mooched my way through winter feeling great about the garden since all my expectations were gone. Now it’s spring and I’m not even feeling the old spring-planting pressure. In summer I will eat strawberries. This garden loves me: it gives lots of healing and asks nothing back.
Creating & Flowing in my Garden
Plant what I LOVE.
Miss a season or a crop.
Compost like mad! It’s easy throwing food in the bin.
Smash the weeds with a big cane-knife, then toss those in too.
Multiply the herbs.
Bring goodness to the garden – sprinkle it on!
Welcome each season, maybe just with a nod and a smile.
Let it run to seed … Tidy it all up again, ooh lovely…
Get bushes which always look nice.
Rake and hoe in a lovely airy-fairy sort of way, while wearing a gorgeous hat.
Or, failing all that,
stay inside and watch something with Johnny Depp in it.
