Berry Nice to See You
My favourite hen died, my cat had a mystery and expensive illness, my garden has given up.
I make things almost daily so that I have a reason for being.
I volunteer so that I have a sense of belonging.
My heart is heavy with unfulfilled dreams and only god knows how much I try to make those dreams a reality.
I look forward with trepidation but also with hope.
This year I have given my garden back to nature. All the potted fruit trees have failed to bear fruit. Strawberries didn't come to bear. The lavender has died. Woody shrubs have blackened with unexpected frosts. But boy, this is going to be a fantastic year for blackberries and I am looking forward to the harvest.
