Yet More Gardening
When Flyfour and I started working on our garden, around the start of lockdown, I came to understand that gardening is a long old job and realised that rather like losing weight, a little each week makes it easier in the long term and more likely that I'd keep up with the chores. So I've been weeding a little bit every day, I've been snipping bits here and there and mostly remembering to water the plants, especially on the hot days.
This last weekend though, I had a plan. I asked Flyfour to go to a local garden centre with me so that I could buy some plants to fill the bed beneath our plum and pear tree. I really wanted to buy the same plants so that I could recreate the bed between the apple and pear tree as I love the way it looks.
Only, the plants I wanted weren't available at a price I wanted to pay.
Flyfour was very confused when he came out to see how I had planted up the bed, he had assumed when I said next to that I meant across from (yeah I have no idea either) and so wasn't sure why I'd planted them where I had, but agreed that as they establish themselves in the next few years, the two beds will be lovely mirrors of each other.
Now, I just need to keep reading all the blogs and websites about gardening that I can find to learn more about gardening, the hints and tips for keeping on top of the weeding, pruning and all the other things that I need to learn to be able to keep a nice garden.
I may never be the standard of gardeners that my grandparents were, but I hope to at least be able to keep a fairly nice garden!
