Freshly painted .
I always find choosing paint colors difficult
very happy with the end result .
all the plants really flourish here .
I fertilise often ( every 3 months)
with organic fertilizer .
I found this old sideboard back in the 1970's
it is from the 1940's era
and the clock just sets it off .
I often glance at the clock when I am gardening to keep
pace of my time between stretching exercises .
My interest of gardening began back in 1973 when I was expecting my first child ..Tara .
I found it was so relaxing, soothing and food for my soul .
the energy I receive from nature is amazing .
On really hot days I wake at about 5 a.m.
to garden in the cool of the early morning before the heat .
I like to spend at least 2-3 hours every day tending to my garden.
digging, pruning, fertilizing, mulching watering etc.
are unique as we made them ourselves way back in 1980
we made 2,500 all by hand
in those days we did not have much money ,
so this was one way of having some paving .
I love the way the moss grows between the stones in the depth of winter
