You'll Find Me In The Garden

Life has seemingly taken over at present, there is much that needs doing. I plan to be spending
time in the potting shed......


Contemplating and intending.

Digging and potting.




"And when your back stops aching and your hands begin to harden...You will find yourself a partner in the Glory of the Garden.".

~ Rudyard Kipling

There is no gardening without humility. Nature is constantly sending even its oldest scholars to the bottom of the class for some egregious blunder.
~ Alfred Austin


Planning a new herb garden, and taking the time to soak up a little peace and serenity.

I love your potting shed--I think I could just sit and enjoy being in there and not get anything done! :-)

Your photos are beautiful as always.

Enjoy your time musing, imagining, enjoying the glory of small plants, and playing in the dirt!

I wish I could convince myself to get out and garden more.

I'm spending a lot of time in my garden as well, but I don't have a potting shed. I certainly like the results of your time in your potting shed.

I found your blog via Life In Wakefield. I live just outside of Bristol Tennessee. Your pictures are amazing. I absolutely love your potting shed. Gardening is one of my favorite things, but don't do as much as I once did. Where in Tennesse do you live?

Enjoy your time out in the garden...it is so good for the soul. Lovely post. Your photos are always such fun and beautiful...they take me away to somewhere far...and I like that.
Enjoy your gardening.

I have been spending far too much time in the potting shed, and not enough time at the drawing board. But it is so addictive in the serenity of the garden shed. Enjoy yourself!

I am new at photography and need all the help I can get.
My mother was English. What part did you come from? She was born in Lancastershire and lived in Ilford a million years ago.
