On the Way
Being in a classroom environment has been nerve racking and challenging at times as my old feelings about school have surfaced from time to time. At school I barely said a word but now being a 'mature' student I have not been afraid of speaking up.
This Thursday I need to identify 10 plants by their common name, genus and species and hopefully not mix up cosmos daisy bippinatus with carrot dorcas carrota as I did last week! In my defence only the feathery fronds were shown so it was an easy mistake to make.
If I fail this level one course on 'Introduction to Working as a Gardener' it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. I have learnt so much about seed sowing, taking cuttings and plant identification that it has made the time out of my usual routine worthwhile.
My love for gardening has been restored once more and I look forward to planning next years garden with renewed vigour! Don't forget to check out my gardening blog sybil's plot as when I am not at Linden Grove I will be out in the garden!!!
