The garden in Suffolk should really be called ‘The Fortnight Garden’ because that is what I am trying to do – make an interesting garden on a few day’s attention once a fortnight. Crazy! I returned from wonderful weeks in South Africa to find the garden in Suffolk hadn’t missed me at all; instead it was getting on with the New Year. I have squeezed in a few days but it really needs my undivided attention for at least a week and I don’t have a week until early April. So what is keeping me busy? I am digging in London, still posting on my travels in South Africa (with gardening posts to come from South Africa!), thinking about what is needed in Suffolk, and starting to work on a little photography exhibition in early 2018 together with a friend! Quite a long list of ‘things to do’ but first I am going to enjoy the spring in the Suffolk garden.
I am loving the daffodils this year!
The daffodils have been glorious this spring, especially when the light shines through the petals. They are such an abundant response to life. Buried underground for months they have the courage to burst out for just a few weeks. I should take heart from them.
