So, if G hadn't already been taken, it would have been for Gardening. But Plan B was set into action, and Horticulture is what I came up with.
I'm new to my little garden. Not new to gardening, but this is the first year I have had here with my own little plot of earth to tend,
I did grow some bits and bobs in pots last year..one success was the lupins...I decided on Sunday that they really needed to come out of the pot and become a part of my garden.
This lovely clump of lupins quite easily and naturally divided into 3 smaller clumps......and ended up living here in the bed by the trellis.
(The trellis is a new addition to the garden...just a few weeks ago, the landlord had the really ramshackle old shed pulled down, and the trellis went up in its' place. :) )
I'm not sure where the concrete "thing" came from..something to do with the deceased shed, I expect, but it fitted in the corner there really well...had to roll it to get it there though! :) And it has the perfect hole to hold up my little gardening fairy girl!
On the other side of the garden I have a small lavender planted, some chives, a couple of pansies and I put a pot of rosemary there also. Mum gave me the rosemary...my parents are planning a move soon, so I guess she was/is thinking of clearing out.
Hey...if clearing out means I inherit your plants, I'll go along with you any day of the week! :)
There's more work to do...always work in a garden. But I love it. I don't wear gloves often, preferring to get dirt all over me..mucky pup that I am.
It's just a lovely pastime which is peaceful and soothing to me...
