I absolutely love gardening, spending time outdoors and especially planting seeds and nurturing them into beautiful flowers.
We have a little greenhouse for growing seeds, I find it very therapeutic..watering and tending to them while they grow. It’s very peaceful and healing for me. I’ve already planted some bulbs that should come up next springtime-something to look forward to as springtime is my favourite time of the year.
I do like summertime too but not so keen when it’s too hot or humid…you’ve no idea what that does to my hair and saying..nothing about hot flushes ha..
I love to sit out in our garden, our sofa hardly gets used in spring or summer because we’re always outside..even if it rains, we sit under the gazebo.
My summer house is now more like a shed, full of gardening stuff and the grandkids toys-lots of toys.
We have some great times when our family are round..we play games or sit and enjoy the sunshine while eating icelollies.
We have a little pond that my hubby made, there’s no fish left now though because one of our dogs got it…it didn’t end well for the poor fish ( bad dog) she’d had her eye on it for a while..little shit.
The dogs love the garden too, they’re so happy when they’re playing out, chasing birds and bugs, rolling around on the grass…pinching fish from our pond ha..
While I’m taking photos of my flowers-I really enjoy nature photography.
My biggest dream is to move to the countryside, have a bigger garden so I can grow more flowers, wildflowers and have a go at growing veggies/fruits/berries. Make homemade beauty products like..face masks, soaps..etc..from my own grown produce.
To have better views too so I can take more, better photos. I’m definitely not a pro but I really enjoy it and feel quite proud of my pics of the flowers..especially the ones I’ve grown myself.
I want to be surrounded by nature, my idea of bliss and stress-free.
I cannot believe I’ve ended up living in a city, nice city but I’m a country girl at heart. Cities are too noisy, chaotic and way too peoply for me.
I grew up in a village, my fondest memories are of playing out in the countryside with my friends..always had fun and adventures..climbing trees, making daisy chains, playing ball games…etc. Simple but fun.
Even autum time is pretty, all the coloured leaves..usually end up all mushy from when it rains..but at least it gives me something to do in the garden…sweeping up ha..
I don’t mind winter so much..but I do miss my gardening and I’m not so keen on the dark early nights.. but it’s nice and fresh out when we go for walks with the dogs..see how I said..we go with the dogs Not we take them…well let me explain..we have crazy dogs that take us for walkies, not the other way around ha..
Fingers crossed I will be able to move to the countryside in the future..ah peace and tranquillity.
Do you love nature? Do you enjoy gardening? Are you city or countryside kind of person? Let me know in the comments.
