I'm hoping for a largish garden anyway, so in the meantime I'll keep on tending my 'potted' garden.
My friends partner has achieved a lot in only a few short weeks, rotovating the ground and levelling it and already there are several varieties of crops in there and look like they are doing very well.
We walked around and I love to see what people are growing and how they are being tended. It's an open windy site so many of the crops are having to be protected with home made barriers and fleece attached to poles. I love to see the structures that have been created using upcycled materials, i.e. pieces of wood, tubing bent to make cloches, various types of netting to use as windbreaks, home made greenhouses and sheds, and of course the compulsory chairs where the weary gardener sits with a huge mug of tea. It's all very creative and frugal. There was a lovely atmosphere over the place, peaceful yet productive, stress free.,
I needed that little bit of peace yesterday, I'm struggling with a huge problem right now that's been going on for years, but has now come to a head, all my attempts to resolve it have been rejected and now the weight of it is getting me down somewhat - oh well - mustn't give up (can't give up!)
A trip to the vet yesterday brought another shock, the vet I've been using for the last 12 months or so had left - what a shocker ! he was so good. I think that may have been the problem, he was so good the World and his wife wanted to see him, I think the pressure may have been too much for him. He has left to do locum work and have more time at his home to care for his own animals. I wish him well. There are three other vets joining the practice in July, so hopefully I'll get another good one, the girls said they will recommend one who is the most 'cat friendly'.
Nothing is permanent is it ? life changes when you least expect it too.
