Open garden 2020

 

 

So grateful for all the visitors interested in our garden, our dream of gardening, the swimming pond, the tiny house.

It was a pleasure to share our garden with all of you on 3 sunny Sundays in June 2020.

From our heart, thank you so much!

Garden magic 

 

 

"February was over before I even noticed it, I was so busy preparing cold frames... Who claims that February in the countryside is dull, dreary and lazy? Here, at any rate, it was the brightest and quickest, and its mild days allowed me to make good progress with digging and fertilizing and to fill my rooms with snowdrops. The longer I live, the greater my respect and affection for fertilizer of all kinds grows, and already, although the year is young, I have spent a considerable part of the garden budget on artificial fertilizer. The grim one says that he has never met a young woman who spends her money this way; I noticed that it must be pleasant to have an original woman, to which he replied that the word "original" did not apply to me, the word I was looking for was rather eccentric."

Pre Christmas seasonal thinking 

 

"Twenty-five years ago, Christmas was not the burden that it is now.

There was less haggling and weighing, less quid pro quo, less fatigue

of body, less wearing of soul, and, most of all, there was less loading

up with trash.

 

- Meredith Deland in Harper's Bazaar, 1904
