My Garden..... A place to sit in peace away from everyday life
Friday, May 16, 2014
It's so peaceful in the garden this afternoon.
The bees are buzzing round the aquilega. All mine are dark but my friend has all light colours so we are going to swap seeds later on.
Finn and Smudge are quiet as well for a few moments. Even the constant sound of lawnmowers on a council estate has faded into the background.
Instead of the book and glass of wine for me this afternoon I have been busy. I made two of these candle holders out of garden canes. And the candles, citronella scented, to go in them. They are dead simple to make just split the cane then bind round at the bottom of the split to stop it going any further. Then just put some twine round to keep the glass from falling out.
I love my garden, but I'm not a gardener. My garden is a place for wildlife and relaxing in. O.K. I help it a bit, but it seems to have a pretty good idea what it wants to grow and what it doesn't want to grow!
