Gardening Leave

Today seems like a good day to put myself on some gardening leave

I always know this a good thing to do when I find myself awake at 4am worrying about life and deciding as a strategy to go and look for snails sneaking towards my runner beans. Not the best coping plan in the universe, it has to be said.

Now whether or not I will actually do any gardening is not really a problem. The plants will organise themselves in the best way possible, as they always do.

What I need to do is try and quieten down the world-noise that is constantly crashing like waves on my shore, day in, day out, relentlessly. I’m not big on newspapers and television, so I don’t have as much crackle as some people do in their lives. But even so, I am feeling a wee bit bombarded, so the quiet of the garden is where I am headed for a short while.

I am right in the middle of a batch of artwork for new card designs, and will be taking these with me to the ocean of the east next week. If I manage to catch any whisps of passing wifi while I am there, I will put up some pictures.

Wishing everyone the loveliest of weeks, may you be gifted some space and down-time too. Be back soon….

Hi Janie, I’m finding I need to be quite solitary at the moment in order to be able to see my path more clearly. You enjoy your garden and your space! X
