I became a gardener once again after purchasing a house with a lovingly planted and tended, 10-year-old garden. I have now been her 15 years myself. I don’t consider myself a gardening expert. Much of my garden survives on benign neglect. I do, though, love what my garden — and all gardens — represent. They are small piece of nature held near and dear. Not matter if you garden consists of several acres or some containers on a balcony, there is joy to be found in “messing about in the garden” — to paraphrase The Wind in the Willows.
Join me here on A Gardener’s Notebook to watch me “messing about in MY garden.”
