We may well ask that question several times between now and the end of May.
The NGS is a charity we have long supported helping friends who open their gardens and of course visiting NGS open gardens buying tea, cake and plants!
We have opened Our Garden@19 for 3 years as part of the village church fund raising group.
This experience along with our two partner gardens has encouraged us to open for the NGS.
|Ready for visitors!|
Irene suggested I do it, if I have learnt nothing after over 40 years of married life it is that I should give careful consideration to any suggestions coming from that direction!
The garden is an important part of my life, I enjoy sitting in the garden with a glass of red or a cup of tea and just absorbing nature and the atmosphere, trees, flowers, grasses, shrubs and wildlife especially the birds, they all contribute to Our Garden@19.
It is satisfying to see your efforts rewarded with seeds germinating, plants growing and flowering just as you planned! We enjoy sharing Our Garden@19 with family, friends members of the Black Pear Gardening Club and visitors.
Writing a blog is a chance to share the garden and my photos with many more enthusiastic gardeners
I enjoy reading other blogs ( See my lists) sharing their gardens, triumphs and problems.
Opening for the NGS does seem a good starting point to create a journal/diary.
