Six years ago, we moved into our present bungalow. It was surrounded by a sea of gravel, and as my wife uses a wheelchair, totally unsuitable. So changes were made, and we soon had a concrete slab drive, and garden path.
The back garden has two red robin bushes, but not much in the way of colour. Yesterday, my son took me to a garden centre, where we choose several plants which would add a splash of colour.
Usually after an hour of weeding, I am very tired. But after planting the new plants out, I had a feeling of real satisfaction, and still feel that this morning.
There has been a lot said about gardening lifting your spirits, and I can now say that is very true…
