Spring is all around and I’m looking forward to having an irrigation system installed in the garden tomorrow so I will hopefully no longer feel like a failure when yet again all the plants dry up and die under the shade of the three huge Sycamores that literally seem to suck the life out of everything. I had an epiphany while we were away on holiday in Morocco, lots of plants can grow in shade its the dryness they can’t cope with…..get an irrigation system installed. Pretty straight forward.
I haven’t felt particularly refreshed since coming back from holiday which is a shame, I did get my copper pans back from the re-tinners and they monogrammed them for me. A little bit of me feel like my life is just beginning.
Some surviving black tulips decided to express themselves this year.
