Recently I turned over some soil and dozens of bulbs were unearthed. Gathered them all up and cleaned them off. I know that when they are planted again mid-April they will give me so much joy next spring.
One of the areas that is very special to me is the alfresco area outside the family room. It was inspired by a scene from the movie Chocolat, some years ago. Not so much the look, but there was an ambience that was created when the birthday dinner was served in the back garden of the Judi Dench character’s home. Something about that scene left an impression, or I should say a feeling, rather than a visual. I have been able to create that ambience. I love sitting under the think grapevine, regardless of the season and just feeling the air under there. This summer the vine has grown so much we have had a curtain to walk through to sit under there. I even have a chandelier there that finishes it off perfectly.
Do you have a green patch or earth spot that fills you with pleasure?
