TENDER LOVING CARE NEEDED


The garden has been devastated by our long wet summer and the recent thunderstorms that have lashed it.
There are cabbages with no hearts; lettuce that’s bolted and won’t come back; spring onions rotten from the root upwards; potatoes with unidentified spots and scabs; spinach that’s gone to seed; flowers with deadheads.
My garden needs some gentle nurturing, attention and sunshine to coax it back to splendour. It will recover but maybe not this month or next. Of course, it’s going to get better eventually; it’s a matter of time.
On my part I’m off to find my own sunshine as I leave for warmer climes tomorrow. I shall resume this blog when I return, full of fresh inspiration and ideas!
