In Limbo at the Garden House
Posted:22 June 2020
Despite the weeks of lockdown (or because of) it has been a busy time here in the garden; plans made earlier are coming to fruition, though sadly without the usual audience of keen fellow gardeners! The roses have been marvellous – a result of our annual pruning workshops – the cutting flower beds are abundant, and our newly designed potager is looking gorgeous as well as plentiful in produce.
We are still mulling over ideas, making plans, tidying the bookshelves, gardening and trying not to feel frustrated, but we are stymied from moving forward until there is greater clarity about how we can operate the Garden House in the near future.
We are also enjoying books, rediscovered from the GH shelves – two we highly recommend, both charting a year in the garden, are:
- The Morville Year by Katherine Swift
- Cuttings by Christopher Lloyd
Wishing you much comfort and happiness in your gardens – and signing off with the wise words of Marcus Cicero (writing in 43 BC) which definitely holds some truth during this strange period in our lives…
“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need”
